Awesome: Elton John

  • How big was Elton in The '70s? He became the first performer to release an album that would debut at Number One on the Billboard magazine Albums Chart, Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy, in 1975. Surely, once you reach that height, there's only one way to go, right? Wrong! The follow-up album Rock Of The Westies would repeat that success later in the year.
  • Not only the piano solo (and wild falsetto singing) in the 1980 Central Park concert, but the shots of audience members playing air piano solos while he played.
  • Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. No comment.
