Over the last 21 years, Elton John's annual Oscar party has raised more than $300 million for AIDS research -- an impressive number that got even bigger on Sunday (Feb. 24), when John's latest bash added another $6 million to the total.
Elton John says his long-awaited new studio effort, recorded in two sessions spread out over nine months, offers fans "everything I love about American music: gospel, soul, country," adding: "It's the most adult record I can make at my age."
Elton John is hoping other artists will follow his lead and set up in-store appearances and performances at HMV, a European record store chain that is facing closure. The singer will be playing a series of in-store shows at retail locations to remind people of the value of the physical record.
Dave Grohl can now add Elton John to his growing list of famous collaborators. The classic rocker has joined Queens of the Stone Age, with whom Grohl is drumming while Foo Fighters are on hiatus, to record a song on their upcoming album. During an interview the two indicated that the style is very different from what fans have come to expect from the famous piano player.
Elton John will join a stagefull of musicians to honor the late Levon Helm during the in memoriam moment at the 2013 Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 10). The all-star lineup will perform the Band song 'The Weight' as the Academy honors musicians who died in the last 12 months.
As hinted earlier this year, the upcoming album from Elton John, 'The Diving Board,' will feature a stripped-down sound and a three-man band lineup. Producer T-Bone Burnett explains exactly how far back the inspiration for this move goes in a new interview.
Elton John may have just played his last show in Beijing. The singer dedicated Sunday night's (Nov. 25) concert in the Chinese capital city to controversial artist Ai Weiwei, who has used his art to bring the world's attention to injustices committed by the Chinese government.
