Remember Elton's 50th birthday party? He's already in the early stages of planning his 60th, he told BBC Radio's Jonathan Ross on Friday, November 12.
So far, he knows it will be on a film stage and that the dress code will call for something fancy.
Meanwhile, Elton says that he is getting better at unwinding. One way is by watching Six Feet Under from two in the afternoon until three in the morning.
As for recent press reports that he has returned to drinks and drugs: ''It's not true. I've never been tempted at all.''
That doesn't apply to food, though. ''I've only got to pass a baker's window and I put on 15 pounds.''
