    Default Elton John DVD

    Surprisingly after serching for a while..I finaly found a "live" Elton John DVD.. And for any who like Elton..this DVD is excellent. Recorded live at the Garden in 2000 and is over 2.5hrs long... DD/DTS and is widscreen... top quality in every way..
    Oh well.. watch the entire concert tonight and give it 5 stars *****:D

    Hell..y'all just have no taste.. Elton john may be a big Flamer...but his music is excellent...been listenint to Elton for over 25yrs now... I admit..I'm not a fan of his stuff in the last couple of years... but if you ask a lot of todays musicians...Elton was a big influance to them...just ask Axle Rose....

    I'd put his music against Posse boy Kid rock or any of the Glamm crap thats out there....

    Ask Axle Rose what? What it feels like to be a one-hit-wonder?

    I don't care about Elton's sexual problems. He's just lame.

    Elton is far from being any kind of influance, unless it is in the gay community. What a wacked out sick-o. Oh yeah, his music is pure crap.

    EJ is just too much of a sappy singer/song writer. EJ and Michael Jackson are too of the biggest free-loaders in the music industry.

    the list goes on....

    Personally, I could care less about his orientation or his politics. His music is pure pop fluff. If that is your thing, no worries. I personally just don't feel that he is the artistic genius that he is generally credited as being.

    TrappedUnderIce..no disrespect to you, I just don't enjoy his music.

    Hey, Elton John is much better than the self proclaimed King of Pop. MJ did one or two good albums... then thats all. His new music doesn't get played on the radio or sell anymore. He's a has been.

    As for Elton John. He and song writing partner Bernie Taupin wrote some of the best lyrics in the 70's and 80's with a few decents ones in the 90's. I think some of you are dismissing him for being gay. It wigs you out .... so therefor you've already formed a negative opinion of him. Secondly, you're not listening to the words/lyrics. In terms of songwriiting... Elton John / Bernie Taupin are nearly as talented as say... Lennon and McCartney.

    So get past the whole gay thing and give EJ a chance... his music is much more than just Crockidile Rock.

    Ron P. I agree with most of your music choices.. with the exception of the Doors, Van Halen, and Cream. They are great bands.. I'm just not that familiar with their music.

    I would have to add to my favorites list The Rollling Stones, Led Zepplin and my all time favorite Heart. Heart one of the best rock bands ever. Anne and Nancy Wilson are the best female rockers to be put on vinyl. Love the guitar beginning of Crazy on You. Magic Man and Straight On are two more classic rock songs. If you haven't listened to your Heart CD's in years.. dust them off and relisten to them. Good rock and roll, pure and simple. (Sorry i'm partial to them, because the hail from Washington state where I live).

    Default hmmm.....

    OK, I gave it some more thought. Nope, I still don't like him.

    Again, sexuality and politcs ASIDE, as in not part of the equation....

    MY OPINION is that I don't like his music, pop-ish and undynamic is my best description and his piano playing is decent but not extraordinary.

    I'm not saying he doesn't have any talent, I just don't care for his music. OK?

    Crocodile Rocks is probably one of the all time crappiest songs to ever be released.

    dangerboy, I'm a pretty open minded guy so get to know us before you start stereotyping us as a bunch of homophobes.

    I once heard the Elton John & Billy Joel dual combo concert.
    This was the one where they both played two piano's at the same time. They kept alternating back and forth between songs.
    All I can say is this. I thought they were similar artists before the concert. After the concert, it was VERY clear that Elton John kicked Billy Joel's fat butt. So, he dresses a little funny - who cares. Don't be so narrow minded people. Jeesh.

    it's not a matter of being narrow-minded or a homophobe, it's just a listening preference, i don't like the music (as many on here seem not to), everyone has music that they don't enjoy, for those of us who do not enjoy elton john's music, why is it assumed that we don't like his music because he's gay??? it's because, to me, it doesn't sound pleasurable for me to sit down and listen to. is it only me that this doesn't make sense to?

    Now this is completely false. Look at my list of music, QUEEN is on it, now we all know that Freddie Mecury was gay. Think before you post. I do not care if EJ is gay, straight, bi...whatever, that fact is I do not like his music, it sucks. My opinion has nothing to do with him being gay.


    Anne and Nancy Wilson are the best female rockers to be put on vinyl.
    I think Joan Jet deserves that seat, with Ann and Nancy following close behind.

    TroyD, I appreciate your explanation on why you don't care for Elton. You gave a honest explaination of your reasons for it. .. and I understand and accept it. Yeah he is not for everyone...

    As for homophobes. I would never call anyone a homophobe. I didn't make that statement to be aimed at anyone.. it was just a general statement of the fact that some guys are uncool with a musican being gay. The people in this forum who have strong feelings about gay people can stick their foot in their own mouth. it comes across loud and clear who is uncool with it.

    Anyway, there will always be gay musicans... it seems to me that most people don' t really care if they are or aren't... if someone is good at what they do.. who cares what they do... as long as it doesn't hurt anyone.

    no worries, mate!

    I just didn't want you to think that we were a bunch of gay bashers or anything. That is very uncool.

    Whats the name of the EJ live DVD you have?
    thanks

    As for country. I don't like it either.. although some Shania Twain is close to pop music .... so I like some of her music. The rest of it.. is to twangy for my tastes.
    Hip Hop / Rap i just can't understand the words... so thats the major reason I don't like it.. my ears get exhausted listening to the same thumping beat in every song.

    My tastes run from 60's girl groups, to 80's music, to Frank Sinatra, to BareNaked Ladies, to classic rock, to Diane Schuur.

    Default All the young girls love Alice.

    I occasionaly enjoy and ALWAYS respect EJ. He put the glam in glamm.

    You want some good twang, check out Bill Monroe. The father of bluegrass on mandolin. I just don't care fo that "young country" stuff.
