In 2010 I was approached by the BBC and asked if I would give permission to use some of my photos of the young Elton John in the BBC4 Documentary ‘Madman across the water - The making of Elton John’, ...of course I said yes.
I even received a credit at the end of the documentary.
I knew Elton earlier in his career when he was plain Reg Dwight & the keyboard player in the band Bluesology, my group played alongside them every night for 1 month in the Top 10 Club Hamburg. At the time I took some photos of him & the band Bluesology.
