Little Richard Elton John: How Little Richard inspired Sir Elton ‘My biggest influence’

“Jerry Lee is a very intricate piano player and very skilful, but Little Richard is more of a pounder.”

Things were even more special for Sir Elton when, in 1993, he released his duets album which included the song The Power, featuring Little Richard.

Of course, this song was overshadowed by the new version of Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me with George Michael, which became a worldwide smash hit.

But despite this, Sir Elton referenced how he was “so nervous” to record it with the legend, in a tribute he made to the singer on Instagram.
