What seems like an unlikely combination is actually a match made in heaven. Elton John is a huge Ryan Adams fan (he was such a huge fan of Heartbreaker that he made Songs from the West Coast to try and imitate Adams’s songwriting) and Gold sounds very much like Madman Across the Water at times. Both are talented songwriters and performers, and these performances of each other’s songs from a 2001 Crossroads special on CMT are testaments to their artistic talents and the quality of their songs.
Also happy 11/11/11! Make a wish at 11:11.11 today if you remember.
