Elton John has been a superstar for nearly forty-five years, but this was the peak. The only thing I ever remember him doing was smoking a little dope back in the late s in the studio with Dick James. When I did go to that momentous day at the Troubador in Los Angeles and I got the review from Robert Hilburn, it was a shock to people in the audience. It was important to me that they play on Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
Obviously, we had grand intentions that came crashing to the ground once we got there and saw the studio, which was, to put it bluntly, abysmal. Both the albums I mentioned are really good. The studio workers were on strike, so we had to cross a picket line to get into the studio. Then some of the equipment broke down. We spent a lot of time congregating around the pool area of the hotel, feeling there was safety in numbers. The Stones did manage to record there, but in retrospect I think they had a mobile unit with them.
There was no fear factor. It was just purely monetary and budgetary. There were no hard feelings about Jamaica whatsoever. It was a bit like the sort of Cuban revolution, trying to make it to the airport. I imagine it was like the scene from The Godfather Part II ,where everybody is just racing for the airport.
