Well, Sir Elton John has caught up with us.
From the latest Rolling Stone:
You keep up with new music, and recently said, "Songwriters today are pretty awful." There must be someone out there you like.Wow!
I like bands that have made their reputations by playing live. Real bands like Vampire Weekend, Arcade Fire and the Black Keys. We played with a band on T Bone's revue, the Punch Brothers, and I want to make a record with them. They're astonishing, the best jam band I've ever seen. It's f*cking brilliant. Jon Brion's production is incredible. They, for me, are the exiting new thing. That's where I want to go.
