the article uses elton as an example, pointing out that the chorus in "tiny 
dancer" has been "mowed down" a bit.   what's so bad about that? I already 
spoke here about genesis on their last tour lowering the key to their songs 
to fit phil collins' current vocal range. it worked. I've heard it.  maybe 
rog should do that.   plus, elton is, what's called, "phrasing" the songs to 
best suit his voice. sinatra was known for being good at that. that's why he 
was still able to perform until his death.  see, when I think of the who 
and elton John, I think frank sinatra... not to mention pavarotti... ; )   
elton still sounds good I think. 

by the way, I was the FIRST to say all that about roger on here. you know 
that, right? ha!
