The July 7, 2004 Daily Record called Elton ''a bit off-pitch.''
It wasn't a reference to the singer's performance, though. The article pointed out that his June Pittodrie concert wrecked the turf. Part of this was due to the heavy concert equipment.
Worse yet was an oil spill from one of the vehicles used in staging the show. Time is of the essence, with the Dons playing on August 7. Also, the total repair cost could be as high as 50,000 pounds.
The good news is that the bill will be covered by the promoters' insurance.
