Inside our camp now we have a saying: “Mad shit occurs if you do artwork”—it means what it means. You make stuff since you need to make it, and also you throw stuff you’ve made into the world since you’d somewhat share it than not and you then depart it alone and let it do its factor. That factor you probably did can take you to locations you didn’t intend to go along with it, nevertheless it’s out of your management actually. You haven’t any management over the mad shit. It simply occurs (if you do artwork). Elton John noticed our stuff and he began telling the press he thought we had been good after which we chatted on the cellphone and after a number of calls I mentioned, “Elton, do you need to come to the studio and play piano on a tune?” as a result of, fuck it, it doesn’t matter if he says no. Anyway, he mentioned “sure,” so it doesn’t matter that he didn’t say no. I don’t know what else to say. He’s good. Switched on, hilarious and an incredible musician.
He [Elton John] began out as a session participant and after he’d laid down the piano and laid down the vocals, taking route from us and making an attempt the whole lot we requested. He mentioned one thing very poignant to me—“I really like enjoying on different folks’s songs, particularly these guys, as a result of I began off as a session musician. The fascinating factor is you hear issues so otherwise from different folks, and if you hear what they hear, then all of it is smart.” That perception, that curiosity and that strategy to music is the explanation he’s nonetheless standing (in spite of everything this time). Elton is a diamond. It was an honor to collaborate with him. My mum is exhibiting off to all her mates and mad shit occurs if you do artwork.
