Rod Stewart has shared his thoughts about Elton on the BBC Sounds podcast Headliners.
''We've been fierce enemies, as you know, through the years, but it's always been at a playful level. But we had the worse row, like a married couple. It went on forever,'' stated the 76-year-old.
This was after he criticised Elton for his farewell tour, saying it wasn't rock and roll but a money-grabbing venture. Now, though, Rod said he was ''a bit spiteful'' and regrets it.
''So we're mates again now. I do love him.''
Elton has said that he doesn't bear a grudge, and will continue to send his colleague Christmas cards.
The pair used to exchange Christmas presents, and Rod recently told the Guardian: ''I bought him a pop-up fridge from Harrods. You pressed a button and there'd be steam and lights and a bottle of champagne. It cost me 600 pounds; a lot of money in the '70s. We swapped presents and he said: 'Oh very nice, dear, thank you.' He gave me a Rembrandt painting! I've never felt so stingy.''
Rod added that Elton is ''eternally the most generous person I've ever known.''
