The only thing missing from the celebrations seems to be a public holiday. Can we have tomorrow off. Lets declare it Sir Elton John day.

The radio & tv airwaves seem to have given him royal status now.

I didn't think we celebrated the Queens birthday in the UK, that's only the old commonwealth isn't it ?

It seems to be the colonies who are celebrating Dame Elton's birthday the most.

The last track on Bob Harris's show last night/this morning was one of Mr Dwight's, in celebration of him being able to get free prescriptions and sight tests.

Don't men only get the heating allowance at 60 ? That will be useful in LA for Mr Reginald Dwight Wink

His early stuff is far and away the best-Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is one of my favourite all time albums.

Happy Birthday Elton John.

... in addition to "Captain Fantastic & The Brown Dirt Cowboy" (another result of a superb collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin). What a wonderful album.

Reg's stuff for Disney has killed his career stone dead. What a load of bilge!

..and not content with reissuing that 3 CD hits compilation numerous times (adding 1 new track on each occasion) I see they're about to release a new single disc package! WHY????

Two of his albums I really like: 'The Fox' - mainly for ''Just Like Belgium'' (a bouncy little track) and the classic 'Blue Moves', for ''Idol''
