Elton accompanied U2 on the piano for their cover of T. Rex's 'Bang A Gong (Get It On)' on a new compilation, ANGELHEADED HIPSTER: THE SONGS OF MARC BOLAN AND T.REX.

Elton and Marc were close friends and the song I’m Going To Be A Teenage Idol is about Marc. "We played it to him and I think he liked it," Elton said in an interview with Beat Instrumental. "He didn't hit me anyway!"

Elton previously performed Bang A Gong (Get It On) with Marc and T. Rex during their 1971 Top Of The Pops appearance.

This double album is released on September 4 and is available to pre-order now on Double CD, Double Vinyl and Digital.
