Details

Elton John in window-well of the Elizabeth Taylor Suite in the Sherry Netherland Hotel, Fifth Avenue, NYC. August 18, 1976, during interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, the "Coming-Out" interview, written by Cliff Jahr. Elton played seven sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden. There was a total press blackout. It was at the hight of this career…total madness everywhere…tons of fans in the lobby, on the sidewalk…he couldn't go out of the hotel. I was hired by Rolling Stone to shoot for the story (Annie was busy). Since I'd been working with Queen, for John Reid (also Elton's mgr), I felt I could get through the blackout. Writer Clif & I sent over a t-shirt that said "Prisoner in New York!". We got the (only) interview the next day, the one where he announced he was gay. Hardly anyone came-out back then. It was a MAJOR scoop for RS. The story was everywhere. Walter Cronkite had it on the CBS news. It went viral…way before the internet! And, my impression of Elton-he was totally down-to earth…he'd rather talk about football (soccer) than music or sexuality. What an assignment!
