Elton Talks to Korean Media

Monday 16 August 2004 @ 23:36 - GMT

Elton considers himself a ''melody person'' who can can come up with compositions like Your Song ''every day.'' It's the fast tempo music which is a challenge since he's a pianist, he told the Chosun Ilbo, which published the interview on August 16, 2004.

Fast or slow, he finds it's the only way he can express his thoughts. Almost every piece contains a story, which is why he loved Tommy. In fact, the production is what piqued his interest in musicals.

Onstage, Elton strives to ''show something special'' to his fans so that they'll talk about it afterwards. {That's also likely to be the case when he has his first performance in Korea on September 17!}
