Re: An interesting book
I just read that Elton discovered and appreciated the piano stylings of Floyd Cramer. From listening to Floyd's work, Elton realized, in his early career, there was a distinctive 'style' that was recognized in all his work. Realizing this, Elton developed his own and was always appreciative of Floyd Cramer's 'life lesson'.
Elton's first demo that he distributed to promotors and radio stations was "He'll Have To Go". Success from this, and the confidence he gained was all he needed to have a long and successful career. All from the humble beginning of a great Jim Reeves song......
