Fame attracts lunatics. Elton
I have a lot of money stashed away, but I do live my life from day to day. Elton Joh
I think performers are all show-offs anyway, especially musicians. Unless you show off, you're not going to get noticed.
I became successful and within five years conquered the world and had the most amazing run. I had so much momentum and adrenaline going, but then it ends and you have to find what level you're going to be on, how enthusiastic you're going to be.
Better to build a bridge than a wall.
I've always been dead set against festivals - really suspicious and wary. Elton
And there's no guarantee that if you get HIV and you take these triple therapies, or whatever comes along next, that they're going to be successful for you.
I don't think there can ever be too many messages about AIDS. If you stop the education process, then people are going to think the problem is all over and done with. They'll think that it's OK to go and have sex again. Education is essential, especially among young people.
Don't you know Iâ€m still standing better than I ever did. Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid. I'm still standing after all this time.
Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.
I've watched other people singing, I've become a much better singer. I've become a singer that plays the piano instead of a piano player that sings.
Well, as I was saying... everyone's so nice to me, usually.
I know that the club is still facing financial difficulties, but I am confident Watford will come through. The key is that the ground must be owned by the club.
I just go into the studio, look at the lyrics for the first time when I put them on the piano, and go. If I haven't got it within 40 minutes, I give up. It's never changed, the thrill has never gone, because I don't know what I'm going to get next.
How dare you refer to my beautiful children as 'synthetic'. And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF - a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfill their dream of having children, your archaic thinking is out of step with the times
When I say I don't have to write pop songs anymore, there's no way I'm going to get on the radio at 60 years of age unless I'm doing a duet with Gaga or I was on 'All of the Lights,' which was a Kanye West record that managed to get on the radio.
What we should be doing as musicians is trying to bring people together.
I wasn't involved in anything. I wasn't out - you know, I know I wasn't in ACT UP. I wasn't with Larry Kramer. I wasn't by his side. I wasn't saying what I should do, because, by all accounts, I was a drug addict and an alcoholic. And I was living in a complete bubble of self-absorption.
I loathe celebrity. I can't stand it.
There ain't been no angels in heaven around since God invented girls.
I don't have a computer. I am the Luddite of rock'n'roll, I don't have a portable phone. I write things down.
I've played in Biloxi many times. I'm just glad we can do a little something for those people's lives that will never be the same again for many, many years. God bless them.
The great thing about rock and roll is that someone like me can be a star. Elton Joh
It was Scotty Moore's guitar riff [in "I Want You, I Need You, I Love You"] when he was doing The Steve Allen Show that got me into rock music.
I'm so proud to be on a Kate Bush record; she's always marched to the beat of her own drum. Elton Joh
Like a candle in the wind, never knowing who to cling to until the rain set it.
Fame attracts lunatics. Elton Joh
You know, it's a very treatable disease. You shouldn't feel ashamed. But I'm afraid that's carried on very much so from the first days of AIDS, when it was basically a gay disease. And then, of course, you know, it affected everybody.
Welcome to the world of bullshit, my dear. You have arrived.
I love football, but I'm sick of the World Cup. I don't even care about England.
