Inside our camp we have now a saying: “Mad shit occurs once you do artwork”—it means what it means. You make stuff since you wish to make it, and also you throw stuff you’ve made into the world since you’d moderately share it than not and then you definately go away it alone and let it do its factor. That factor you probably did can take you to locations you didn’t intend to go along with it, however it’s out of your management actually. You don’t have any management over the mad shit. It simply occurs (once you do artwork). Elton John noticed our stuff and he began telling the press he thought we had been good after which we chatted on the cellphone and after a couple of calls I mentioned, “Elton, do you wish to come to the studio and play piano on a tune?” as a result of, fuck it, it doesn’t matter if he says no. Anyway, he mentioned “sure,” so it doesn’t matter that he didn’t say no. I don’t know what else to say. He’s sensible. Switched on, hilarious and a tremendous musician.
He [Elton John] began out as a session participant and after he’d laid down the piano and laid down the vocals, taking course from us and attempting every part we requested. He mentioned one thing very poignant to me—“I like enjoying on different folks’s songs, particularly these guys, as a result of I began off as a session musician. The fascinating factor is you hear issues so in another way from different folks, and once you hear what they hear, then all of it is sensible.” That perception, that curiosity and that method to music is the explanation he’s nonetheless standing (in any case this time). Elton is a diamond. It was an honor to collaborate with him. My mum is displaying off to all her mates and mad shit occurs once you do artwork.
