Elton might not approve but a cheap radio playing one of his yesteryear hits provides music at the Rincon RV Resort Farmer’s Market.
Having the same feeling as watching a John Wayne on a TNT movie night, I listen to Elton belt out his early ancient hit to whomever is listening. Once a song goes out on the air, it has more lives than a cat. Elton is still alive but planning a world farewell tour because 70 years old is too old too still be a Rock and Roll star.
Now, rumors of his lifestyle are far more interesting than his music.
It seems odd to see old men rockers going on stage with scruffy beards, dark shades, lots of bling, crooked teeth, being interviewed about going to drug and alcohol rehab to save their marriages and their relationships with their kids. Good songs seem to outlast their writers and resonate across generational borders.
Ghosts stick around for a while, but music residuals can go on forever.
