There are few artists to have had as celebrated a career as Elton John. Despite that, he maintains that it’s what’s still to come that gives him the most excitement and pleasure regarding his work: “It’s lovely to go and to look back, but I’m a person who looks forward; I’m more interested in what’s going to happen next. I value the past and my career, and sometimes when I go back, I think, ‘Oh, that’s not band, that’s pretty good’ — but I’m all about what’s going to happen next. That keeps me on my toes and it keeps me young. It’s always about tomorrow and not the past.”
