Elton John has announced that he is ending his musical career. Now before you get all verklempt, he’s done this before, and he made the announcement in the middle of a show in France, while singing “Candle in the Wind”.
If you had to sing “Candle in the Wind” a jillion times, you’d threaten to throw in the towel too. Elton told the audience “No more shows, no more music, no more songs.”
Elton, who’s 67, has sold nearly 250 million albums worldwide during his career of over 40 years. He says he wants to spend more time with his family – he and husband David Furnish are parents to two little boys… Can’t see Elton taking time to go fishing. I can, however, see him playing catch.
