EJW readers may also recall that the Englishman was to have attended a function for Western Wishes, which is dedicated to children and young adults faced with adversity who live and appreciate the western way of life.
The organisation celebrates the courage, spirit, and determination of these individuals by granting wishes and highlighting accomplishments.
The President and Founder is Donnalyn Quintana, who told EJW that Taupin was expected to attend their 15th anniversary music video premiere on May 22–which happens to be the writer’s 60th birthday–at the Fess Parker Vineyards in Santa Ynez, California.
However, says Donnalyn, this has been moved to September instead.
And are most fans know, Bernie has also been working on a new album with Elton and Leon Russell.
In fact, Leon and Elton plan to play some dates together this fall.
