Elton John - Madman Across The Water




Nice version with the late great Mick Ronson on lead guitar. Ronson, Bowie's longtime sideman, was infamously frozen out by Bob Dylan on his Rolling Thunder Revue Tour, an event that fried Ronson emotionally. The Dylan party line was that he couldn't improvise or follow the changes. I don't know, wasn't there. Later died of cancer. A wonderful guitar player.

Mick died years later, 1993, so he had plenty of time to get over Bob messin' with his mind, i would think. but hey, i wasn't there either, so what do i know. great guitar player, though. the video from the Hard Rain tour is amazing.

My ex husband just loved the line "Get a load of him, he's so insane!"--I should have taken that as a sign.

Great jams.
