Elton John: Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player

John Pidgeon, Let It Rock, April 1973

THE ONLY SUPERFICIAL sign of the album's French origin is its title, a contrary translation of Truffaut's film Tirez Sur Le Pianiste. Truffaut's pianist was Charles Aznavour: a short arse like Elton John. End of connection?
