Just recorded Get Onto My Cloud episode 3 - some lesser known stuff I've done with Elton over the years. Ace producer Pete Hobbs currently putting it all together. Featuring @RandyNewman & Sir Elton duet from Road To El Dorado & first ever EJ/TR track.

Righty ho. Podcast 3 of Get Onto My Cloud includes 3 Elton/me songs; from Road to El Dorado and/or Aida and the new Lion King movie song that kinda got lost in the rush of stars (but I like it) plus a rock track we wrote in 1981. https://getontomycloud.podbean.com available Mon morn.

Working on Podcast #3 of Get Onto My Cloud. Writing with Elton: Aida, Road to El Dorado, Lion King & an early one-off in 1981. 2 or 3 lesser-known masterpieces (you've heard Hakuna Matata & Circle Of Life before)#SirElton @aidatour @disneybroadway

Read Michael Henderson's That Will Be England Gone, a cricket book about much more than cricket. Simultaneously elegiac and celebratory; Trueman & Trescothick, Trent Bridge & Chesterfield, Kathleen Ferrier & Sex Pistols, Simon Rattle & Roy Harper, Harold Pinter and, er, moi.

In 1965 my dear departed dad said I would get fed up with all this half-witted Top 40 stuff. I disagreed profoundly but finally he's been proved right.

Good luck Stu! Can't wait to get back to @FHTEMusical with you ASAP.

World class commentary!! Tweet of the year so far.
