Alice Cooper once called Elton's guitarist ''one of those great players who could play anything'' and ''one of the great road guys of all time.''
Incidentally, Davey Johnstone joined Alice onstage earlier this year. Just four nights after performing with Elton at another Auckland venue, the musician came on towards the end of Cooper's show for School's Out.
Ryan Roxie, who plays guitar in Alice's band, later posted a photo of Davey with ''the boys of the ACB'' for his Facebook page. He has a podcast called In The Trenches, and the latest one features the Scotsman.
