Rocket Hour Special with Sam Smith

Elton recording Rocket Hour with Sam Smith

Elton John collector Peter Thomas, owner and founder of PMC Speakers, spoke with us about the contributions he made to the ‘Madman Across The Water’ Anniversary Edition, which includes two never-before-released demos.

The first two Madman.. demos I came across were Holiday Inn and All The Nasties. I acquired those from a guy who had worked at Dick James Music. This was in about ’79. I always remember getting Holiday Inn because it had that extra verse in it that had never been heard before. “The TV don’t work and the French fries are cold”. I loved that.
