The Scottish icon has described Elton John's farewell tour as "dishonest" and says that it's a ploy to simply sell more tickets! Ouch!
“I don’t think this is a big deal, it stinks of selling tickets," he claimed.
It’s dishonest. It’s not rock and roll.”
Rod says he also reached out to personally express these views to Elton John himself.
"I did email her [Elton] and said, ‘What, again dear?'”. Rod said during a recent TV interview.
But Elton never answered the email. "I didn’t hear anything back!"
Rod says that unlike Elton he won't be making a big song and dance about retiring himself.
If I retire, I won’t make an announcement. I’ll just fade away,” he stated.
