Oh, just write the fucking songs, Bernie. Let me handle the rest!
Elton John had a full beard when he first played the Troubadour.
The film has a 'text ending'. It reveals that Elton John has been sober for 28 years and counting (but still has a problem with shopping), has established a successful aids charity that has raised over $400 million for HIV/ aids sufferers, is still friends with Bernie Taupin and has never had an argument with him, has finally found proper love with his now husband David Furnish, and has retired from making music in order to focus on raising his two sons.
