Sitting here watching the tribute to Sir Elton and Bernie - what an amazing team! Elton and Bernie are truly one of the great teams of all time!

Paul - when's the last time you went to a baseball game and most everyone stood up, put hands over hearts, turned toward the flag, and actually sang the national anthem?

I haven't seen that in several decades.

I thought it was a nice tribute and some if the covers were pretty good. Elton did a couple songs at the end.

I really loved the "Tumbleweed Connection" LP back in about 1970/1. Nearly wore it out.

Musician's interpreting another's work is probably as old as music. May or may not be as good but has happened for centuries.

Even The Beatles did covers of other artists: Carl Perkins and Chuck Berry come to mind.
