Elton John styled by James Blunt
James Blunt once styled Elton John for one of his concerts.
The 'So Far Gone' hitmaker said he was feeling bad on his birthday last year as he was on his own in the US, but a kind gesture from fellow songwriter Elton John led to him styling him for a show.
James explained: "Last year, on my birthday, I was alone in Denver, eating chicken wings and drinking champagne, and thinking, 'What a miserable experience to be doing this on my birthday'.
"Then I got a call. It was Elton on the line, saying, 'Hey, I'm in Denver, too, doing a show with Billy Joel. Why don't you come and hang out in my dressing room, while I get ready?'
"So I went and helped him choose his stage clothes."
Elton is known for his trademark wacky glasses and likes to style himself in bright colours, and during his earlier career he was renowned for wearing spectacular outfits, including many jumpsuits in wild colours with lots of sequins and jewellery.
James, 36, added while he enjoyed the concert, he worried that people could misinterpret his front row seat and think he was a crazed fan of the flamboyant 'Your Song' singer.
He told website gibson.com: "He gave me a front row seat, which is a weird place to be. People were pointing at me, probably thinking, 'Hey, there's that singer. He must be a psychotic Elton fan'.
"They probably thought I followed him all across the world, sitting in the front row."Posted on 28 Jan 2011 16:15 to category : Music News
