Did anyone watch the Elton John concert on the TV last night ? Did you notice he was slurring his words on 'Candle in the wind' he didn't seem to be with it at times.

"he didn't seem to be with it at times"

And you've only just noticed??

a trillion times, and is probably heartily sick of it by now. I watched him sing the song, and though t that his voice is beginning to reflect the fact that he's in his sixties, and has burned his personal candle at both ends for decades.

I must admit I haven't seem him perform in a long time, I think forum editor is right about burning his candle at both ends.

" .about burning his candle at both ends.."

Too much information for New Year's morning. (;-)

Only ITV would cut Elton off to carry advertisements just as he started a number and then rejoin half-way through the song.

I got so cheesed off with the coverage that I gave up in disgust to watch the end of Jools Holland's annual knees-up.

He was never a great singer but a fantastic showman. I thought he looked relaxed and enjoying himself. Quite a few bum notes though!

I also thought that Elton's voice is beginning to reflect his age, but probably not surprising in view of the fact he's a rock singer and undertakes dozens of concerts each year.

Didn't stop the great Frank Sinatra enjoying so many comebacks though despite his long years in show business.

I missed part of it as we turned over to watch the London fireworks on BBC1 - one of the most spectacular displays I have ever seen.

Smooth radio played a recording of "candle" this morning, what a difference to what I heard last night,is it time he hung up his stirrup,and took up fishing
