Elton recently paid tribute to Adam Yauch, dedicating Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me to him.

At a Las Vegas concert, he noted the Beastie Boys member was 47--''which is nothing''--when he lost his battle with cancer.

Elton admitted he didn't really know the fellows, but had seen them perform
at the Greek Theater in 2007.

"I had the time of my life. They were incredible," he recalled before adding, "It's so sad to leave behind the wife and the daughter."

Elton also acknowledged the loss of  Dick Clark and Levon Helm.
