British rock veteran Elton John broke his personal record with entering Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Songs chart after 27 years, thanks to Black Sabbath icon Ozzy Osbourne.
As we all know, Elton John is featured on Ozzy Osbourne’s song, Ordinary Man. Ozzy’s song rolled to number 34 on the chart, which is published on February 29, and it was revealed that John appeared in the survey for the first time after 27 years.
The last time of Elton John’s appearance on the chart was when the ‘Runaway Train,’ which featured Eric Clapton, hit rolled number 10 in September 1992.
John broke the record for the longest break in the 39-year history of Mainstream Rock Songs, passing Queen guitarist Brian May.
