Eleven-times world Darts champion Phil "The Power" Taylor is asking Elton to come up with a tune for Sport Relief, the televised charity fund-raiser in Britain.

Taylor, who is partnered with former Hear'Say singer Kym Marsh, hopes to persuade other sports stars to join them in making a charity record for Sports Relief this spring, reported, The Mirror on January 9, 2004.

"I'm asking Gary Barlow or Elton John to write a song," says Taylor.

And he's hoping boxer Ricky Hatton, Olympic rower Steve Redgrave and snooker players Steve Davis, Ronnie O'Sullivan and Mark Williams will join them.
