an amazing movie -- a tour de force about Elton John's
All through the film I was thinking back to meeting
Bernie Taupin, and to how I really didn't get his part
in the music of Elton John until I saw it clearly in
this movie. I'm so glad the film made it clear, that
Elton John is the music, and Bernie Taupin, his
loyal, incredibly wonderful friend, is the words.
Without the music the words would not sing, and
without the words, the songs would not be great.
The whole story hit me powerfully, and I'm
so glad I got to meet the genius who wrote
the words. And I'm glad that we share a love
of making art -- as in painting.
Have an enjoying the brilliance around you day.
