This fall, Elton will work with the NFL, according to the September 10, 2004 Press Herald.
He'll provide music to commercials for the league's ''Join the Team'' program, a volunteer community service outreach program.
While he didn't offer details at the press conference prior to the September 9 kickoff, the musician did speak about the success of the Patriots.
Their secret, he said, is that they play as a team. ''All the payroll in the world won't get you anywhere if you don't play together.''
