A list compiled by the high-society magazine Tatler of the
most-sought-after party guests in Britain makes Elton work overtime!
Tatler says Mick Jagger and partner Jerry Hall, come in fourth, ahead of actor Hugh Grant and actress Elizabeth Hurley at No. 6., while British Prime Minister Tony Blair and wife, Cherie are ranked 10th.
Elton not only was summoned to perform at Princess Diana's funeral, he also led the celebrations for peace in Northern Ireland in May with an open-air concert in Belfast.
"He comes highest because he touches so many different worlds -- football, pop, fashion, films, shopping," Tatler Editor Jane Procter said.
