New photo surfaces featuring Elton & Bowie TOGETHER

Nearly a year ago, I posted a picture that featured David Bowie and Elton John in the same vicinity. As this is such a rare image, the photo has received a lot of hits. Today, another photo has surfaced. This one appears to be a conversation that seems to have taken place backstage at the Freddie Mercury tribute concert April 20, 1992.
Sadly, it has long been suspected and now recently confirmed by Elton himself that Bowie and Elton hung out together early on, but had a falling out that lingered for over 40 years and never achieved resolution prior to Bowie's death. JavaMusiK

Hymns - A Piano Study of Meditation & Inspiration

Recently, I have been giving a reading on the background leading up to the composition of various traditional hymns each week in church, followed by playing a "piano meditation" of that piece.

I am doing this, in part, to build my catalog of potential hymns that can be featured in my performance of my History of Hymns program at YMCA of The Rockies as part of their Christian Artist Series. My performance for this series will take place at Ponder Chapel on the YMCA of the Rockies grounds in Estes Park, CO Tuesday, July 28.

This YouTube playlist is presently growing each week. Please keep checking it as it grows and listen often! Look for a recorded cd to eventually be made of these and other hymns.
