53 year old Paul Storey was feeding majestic ghost carp in a pond at Burnby Hall Gardens near Pocklington, East Yorkshire in England the other day, and lo and behold, one carp swims up to him who is the spitting image of Elton John circa the 1970s in full performance regalia.
Putin's call came just a week after a pair of Russian comedians tricked John, 68, into thinking he was talking to Putin on the phone in a stunt that the entertainer laughed off, while saying he hoped it would highlight discrimination against gay people.
Elton John first came to New Zealand in October 1971 at Western Springs. His second visit was February 1974 - then of course numerous times after that. He's played in Taranaki, Dunedin and Wellington, to name just a few and will be returning in November to perform at the Wellington stadium.
