Ever Recorded A Tribute Record You Shouldn’t’ve?
“Elton John sings and plays piano on a new tribute single to John Peel, a cover version of the Buzzcocks’ Ever Fallen in Love, which will be first played simultaneously across all BBC radio stations tomorrow.”
That “tomorrow” would be today, October 11. Fortunately, I will be traveling and unable to tune in via my trusty laptop. I mean, really, I love John Peel as much as Elton John, but is this tribute strictly necessary? And if it is, can’t we leave it to Nouvelle Vague?
Elton John is 58. John Peel is turning in his grave.
