Just Call
Him
Elton

eginald Kenneth
Dwight? Friends call
him Elton.
There are millions of them.
But don't let all those fans
scare you away from cozying up
to Elton John at the Palace of
Auburn Hills. (See related story,
page 79).
Music writer Gary Graff
takes a good look at the many
sides of this pop icon, who due
in large measure to the success
of The Lion King has become
somewhat of a star for children
as well as teens and adults.
But there are many who re-
member and still listen to
"Rocket Man" or "Levon," and
those works and more will un-
doubtedly be part of Elton's
repertoire during his Detroit
performances.
There are many sides to this
performer, some dark. But then
there is the shining light, the
work he and his foundations for
AIDS are known for.
All these sides make him a
performer whose message con-
tinues.
