Elton recently explained his decision to stop Donald Trump from using his songs at rallies.
He told the Guardian:“I don’t really want my music to be involved in anything to do with an American election campaign. I’m British. I’ve met Donald Trump, he was very nice to me, it’s nothing personal, his political views are his own, mine are very different, I’m not a Republican in a million years.”
As for how people react when they turn up at Pizza Hut to find the Rocket Man by the unlimited salad bar, Elton said, “They just say: ‘Hello, how’re you doing?’ If people want a photograph, I don’t mind, I really don’t. I’m not going to stay indoors because people want a photograph. The general public, I have to say, are fucking brilliant when it comes to that kind of thing. They’re not hostile in any way, they’re really supportive, they couldn’t be sweeter.”
