Bernie Taupin: The B-Side of Elton John

Steve Turner, Beat Instrumental, February 1972

The offices of DJM records in new Oxford Street give the feeling of being a shrine to the glory of Elton John. Button-size stickers are stuck on each one of the stairs announcing Elton John until you reach the second floor where the walls are decorated with long and short-haired pictures of Elton. Elton leaping, Elton smiling and... Elton with Bernie.

Total word count of piece: 1945
