Elton John: Gaga LP might come out early next year

  Elton John: Gaga LP might come out early next year Sir Elton John has given an updated on his close pal Lady Gaga's fourth studio LP and teased the tracks he's worked on with Mark Ronson are "brilliant".Lady Gaga's new album might not be released until 2017, according to Sir Elton John.

Anthony Kiedis couldn't help but "fan boy" over Elton John when he worked on the new Red Hot Chili Peppers album.

The By the Way band were writing Sick Love, a song inspired by the chord changes to Elton's classic 1973 hit Benny and The Jets, so they gave the British singer/songwriter and his co-writer Bernie Taupin a credit and reached out to him to ask if he would like to play on the track. To their surprise, he agreed.

"(We) asked him to play on the record to give it his blessing," frontman Anthony tells Britain's The Sun newspaper. “We asked Elton who said, ‘I’m a big fan. I’ll be there' and he came in and he was very sweet.

Elton John blasts security guards

  Elton John blasts security guards Sir Elton John hit out at security guards who tried to stop people dancing at his concert .The 69-year-old musician was performing at the Leicestershire County Cricket Ground for 17,000 fans on Saturday (11.06.16) when he hit out at stewards who were attempting to prevent fans from leaving their seats to dance. According to the Daily Mirror, he said: "Security guards, sit down or I'm not going to do the rest of the concert and you'll end up in f****** trouble. Now sit down you p*****.

“He was even a bit nervous when he came in. As soon as he touched the piano it was magical. You try not to be a fan boy, but it IS Sir Elton John... He talked about everything and was really cool... It’s a real honour for us to have him on the record.”

The Red Hot Chili Peppers have been fans of Elton for years, and even made their own version of his hit Tiny Dancer for their 1998 cover album.

Sick Love appears on The Getaway, their first album in five years, which is released on Friday (17Jun16). Anthony admits a lot of record was influenced by the end of his relationship with 22-year-old supermodel Helena Vestergaard in 2014.

Anthony, 53, says, “I was a mess for the last year of my life. To be so in love with somebody and then have it not work out even though you would have done anything to figure it out. I was definitely shaken and saddened... But I got through it and felt even more turned on by life and playing music and so I had something to write about.

“Those two years of the relationship turned out to be a very valuable experience and material for singing about. One of my best mates said, ‘Dude you got a record out of the deal so don’t even sweat about it as she was worth all the aggravation.' "

"I thought we had it" - Domata Peko interview .
I spoke to Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Domata Peko at NFL UK’s “Summer Bowl” event in London. The Bengals have lost some pieces this offseason. Reggie Nelson, a couple of wide receivers, offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. Are the plans in place to get back to the playoffs? Yeah, we lost some players. We’re really gonna miss Reggie Nelson defensively, and Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu on offense. But you know what, we still got our core players there man. We just gotta keep working hard and doing our best out there. But also, during the draft we added a couple of key components, so we’ll be fine. Who are you looking at to fill in for Nelson at safety? Shawn Williams is a great defender, last year he made some key plays for us, and he was just waiting for this opportunity man. He has his chance to shine, and he’ll be fine. As the Bengals failed to win again in the playoffs last year, are you approaching the new season with a different mentality to get over that hump? Yeah, man. Every year, everyone has a chance. We’ve just got to make sure we get to the playoffs again, and once we get there we’ll be ready, you know? We just need to keep working hard. Coach told us man, it’s just like someone trying to break a rock. You’re hammering away and you don’t know what hit’s gonna break that rock. But what you gotta do is keep working, and that’s what we’re gonna do. And you were so close last year. Yeah, I thought we had it man.
