Elton John said:
“In the late 1980s, I had an insane party in Los Angeles and invited everyone I knew. In the middle of the night, I was ‘high’, absolutely stoned, when a clumsy guy I didn’t recognize came into the bright garden,” the musician says.
“I thought it might be someone on my staff, the gardener. I demanded aloud to know what the gardener was doing, pouring himself a drink,” he reveals.
“There was a moment of silence and shock between the people, which was broken by my assistant who said to me:‘ Elton, this is not the gardener. It’s Bob Dylan ‘”.
Embarrassed, Elton comments:
“Looking forward to making up, I started guiding him to the house and said to him:‘ We can’t have you in these terrible clothes. Let’s go upstairs and I can lend you something.’
John explains that Dylan was “horrified” by his comments: “His expression suggested that he was trying hard to think of something he wanted to do less than dress like an Elton John.” Despite the confusion, the musicians spent time in each other’s company after the party.
Me, Elton John’s autobiography, will be released on October 15th.
