Elton Sings 'Your Song' and Finds Himself New Star of the 70s
Mike Gormley, Detroit Free Press, 19 December 1970
ELTON JOHN is a pianist, singer, songwriter and newfound hero of musicians and music lovers alike. Bob Dylan came to see him one night and liked the show so much he brought his wife back the next night. The Band flew into Philadelphia from New York just to hear the music Elton plays along with fellow musicians Nigel Olsson on drums and Dee Murray on bass. Leon Russell, Elton's idol, asked to play with him on stage. And last summer no one even knew who he was.
