Elton met John at a video shoot for the former Beatles’ fourth album, Mind Games.
He tells Sean: “I was a little bit, obviously I was in awe, I was meeting any of The Beatles and they all treated me so brilliantly, but your dad had that edge that none of the other Beatles had kind of because he wasn’t afraid to say what he thought.
“Your dad was as kind and as generous and sweet and we just hit it off immediately. He was so funny. That’s what I loved about him. And we talked about music, we talked about records we loved.
Sean adds: “And other things. He did other things I heard.”
Elton replies: “Yeah, we did other things [laughs]. We did a lot of naughty, naughty things together. We had a lot of fun. Oh my god.”
