Elton John Top Ten   w/a Shot of Bradbury!

Elton John Top Ten w/a Shot of Bradbury!

Elton John and his songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin, were fans of Ray Bradbury’s writing and the song “Rocket Man” was, in fact, inspired by Bradbury’s 1951 short story “The Rocket Man”. I recommend reading the Bradbury short story “The Rocket Man” and then plug in  the earbuds (or Seashells?) and give Elton’s “Rocket Man” a listen. Neither one will disappoint.
