To paraphrase the Ringo Starr classic, it don’t always come easy, and that was the case with Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” Elton took his team — lyricist Bernie Taupin, guitarist Davey Johnstone, bassist Dee Murray, drummer Nigel Olsson and producer Gus Dudgeon — to Jamaica to record the follow-up to two consecutive #1 albums: 1972′s “Honky Chateau” and 1973′s “Don’t Shoot Me, I’m Only The Piano Player.”
Elton John has been harshly critical of some of his more recent albums. Give the man some credit, though: unlike many of his peers, he’s put out at least one classic album since 2000 (“Songs From The West Coast”). In his spare time, he single-handedly resurrected the career of his idol (Leon Russell), and also contributed to four other Top 5 albums. This week, the bitch is back with a new album, “The Diving Board.” Let’s have a look at what he’s done for us lately.
Amidst yesterday’s release of his latest album, The Diving Board, Elton John appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show to promote the album, as well as give his own candid thoughts and opinions on the currently controversial Miley Cyrus.
As part of the celebration of the HBO movie Behind the Candelabra at the 2013 Emmy Awards, Elton John was on hand for a tribute to the film’s subject, Liberace.
In advance of the September 24th release, Elton John’s ‘The Diving Board’ is available to stream for free.
