Elton is an Editor
SIR Elton John has turned his hand to musicals and movie scores, but the hard-working piano man can now add editor to his CV, overseeing a special issue of Sydney's Time Out magazine.
The publishing coup, on sale tomorrow, provides the Crocodile Rocker's guide to his favourite nosh spots, shops and 'knight life' since bunking down in town for his national concert tour and producer duties for Billy Elliot, which opens tomorrow night at the Capitol Theatre.
But as his exclusive chat with Aussie director Baz Luhrmann reveals, he's still hawking for more work, offering his songs for use in Australia.
The pair have been firm friends since John gave Luhrmann the nod to use Your Song in Moulin Rouge.
And there's a chance the fan could take Elton up on his offer, joking "well, there is a scene in the film involving a crocodile...''. Snap!
THE AFTER PARTY WILL BE HELD AT SOFITEL WENTWORTH, HUGH JACKMAN AND MOLLY MELDRUM ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND.
