What about Elton's duets with fellow prisoners?

Don't Go Breaking My Face (with inmate Kiki Dee)

and

Don't Let The Prisoner Two Doors Along Go Down On Me (with, ironically, George Michael)

"nd it seems to me that you lived your life like a vandal who had sinned.
Never knowing who to turn over when the pain set in.
I wouldn't like to know you, a vandal burned out long ago.."

Such kind words from Mr. Loaded and Loaded under the "Your Say" section:

"Stick a fork in these two, they're done. Get used to playing the five knuckle shuffle for a while boys."

And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
Till early release brings me round again to find
I’m not the man they think I am at home
Oh no no no I’m a Brockley man
Brockley man burning out his fuse up here alone

Vandal In The Wind.

(though admittedly he was a bit more than a vandal!)

Comments on the article linked to are pretty 'eek'!

Yeah, 'dwphillips' seems particularly upset about Elton's Ball & Chain situation and the police man that got him there.

I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues...
