Elton on Graham Taylor's Death
He was like a brother to me. We shared an unbreakable bond since we first met. We went on an incredible journey together and it will stay with me forever. He took my beloved Watford from the depths of the lower leagues to unchartered territory and into Europe. We have become a leading English club because of his managerial wisdom and genius.
This is a sad and dark day for Watford. The club and the town. We will cherish Graham and drown our sorrows in the many brilliant memories he gave us.
I love you Graham. I will miss you very much.
My thoughts go out to Rita, Joanne, Karen and the whole Taylor family.'
- Elton John
Watford have rolled out the red carpet and invited the Rocket Man himself, Sir Elton John to join Saturday’s emotional tribute to Graham Taylor.
No memorial for Hornets godfather Taylor, who died on Thursday aged 72, would be complete without his former chairman who financed the club’s magic carpet ride.
