The legendary English rockstar, Elton John, recently posted a photo of himself and his husband David Furnish on his Instagram account and announced that after David’s insistence on Elton John doing a ‘Canada Special‘ episode on his Rocket Hour show, the famous rockstar gave in provided that David co–hosts with him.
Elton John is without a doubt one of the most world-renown and accomplished musicians of all time. He embarked on a career in music back in 1962 and he is still actively creating music, performing on stage, and doing podcasts in which he introduces new musicians, reminds his listeners of all-time classics, and pays respects to late musicians.
Sir Elton John is not famous just for his music career but for his philanthropy too. His great efforts to raise awareness on crucial matters, and his unending support for non-governmental organizations, and even founding his own The Elton John AIDS Foundation, have all been highly appreciated by everyone in the rock scene. These efforts were also congratulated by Queen Elizabeth II, who knighted Elton John in 1998.
In the past years, Elton John has been hosting a podcast named ‘Rocket Hour’ in which he interviews already famous or up-and-coming stars and plays songs that he likes very much. As it turns out, David Furnish, the Canadian filmmaker, recently told his husband that he has been neglecting his motherland. Thus, Elton John asked David to co-host a podcast episode with him so that they can make the ‘Canada Special Rocket Hour’ happen!
Here’s what Elton John said in the caption of his recent Instagram post:
“David has been nagging me to do an all–Canadian episode of #RocketHour, so this week I asked him to join me and we made it happen! We played music from Leonard Cohen, k.d. lang, Rush, Joni Mitchell, and more, but there are so many great Canadian artists out there, we will have to do at least two more shows to fit them all in!
