Melbourne DJ Shares Manager with Elton John
MELBOURNE DJ and musician Kaz James had to pass one hurdle when he was being courted by Elton John's management company Twenty First Artists.
Turns out the music legend loved James' album If They Knew and the Melburnian now shares a manager with Lily Allen, James Blunt and Elton himself.
"Elton knows more about music than any person I've met in my entire life," James says.
"He was talking to me about underground techno coming out of Germany. I don't even know how he knows about this.
"He flew me to Vegas to see his show, we had dinner at his house - he's still so passionate about music. He lives for music and he likes helping new people come through. This (management) company is about him leaving a legacy. He's an amazing guy, one of the coolest cats I've ever met."
