When Elton recently shopped at a record store in Vancouver, British Columbia, it made the news.
As this Web site reported, the pop veteran visited Beat Street Records on March 9, where he requested albums by Tech N9ne.
The store was out of the rapper's music, so Elton ended up buying records by Morris Day, Little Feat, Scritti Polliti and Linda Ronstadt instead.
Upon hearing about this, the Kansas City performer said:
“I was totally flattered. When a musician of his magnitude walks into a record store and requests your music, that's validation for songs like ‘Who Do I Catch Now.’ When you a write a song like “Who Do I Catch Now” you already know you are supposed to catch everybody, but you don't know who is coming next.
“Thank you so much. I can’t wait to meet you and talk music and talk a collab.”
