This Is Your Song: The Elton John Interview

Rick McGrath, Mike Quigley, Georgia Straight, The, 11 April 1971

WE ENTER THE Holiday Inn on Howe Street through its Southern-fried colonnade and up its Harlequin Romance staircase into the Columbia Room with its Christmas tree light candelabras. There we meet the Head Canadian Flack from MCA-Uni Records, who are throwing this little cocktail party-reception for Elton John. A stereo set on a table hums out Elton John Muzak, in contrast to the tinny string goop in the lobby outside.
