Authors Margaret Moser and Bill Crawfords have written a book Rock Stars Do the Dumbest Things. The nearly 300-page book chronicles the excess, insanity and inanity that showbiz seems to attract.

 

In one extract, travelling, Elton used the names Bobo Latrine and Binky Poodle-Clip to avoid attention. Guess they wouldn't work anymore though!

 

And his least successful stage outfit was the wooden pants. Yes, we know the joke: the splinters were a bit of a problem!
