Sir Elton John - Elton John Vows To Tone Down Hectic Schedule For Sons

Music legend Sir Elton John has vowed to cut back on his hectic touring schedule when his two young sons start school so he can be a more hands-on father.

The Rocket Man hitmaker and his partner David Furnish have two boys together, Zachary, two, and six-month-old Elijah, and the singer takes his young family all over the world with him as he performs around 120 concerts a year.

However, Sir Elton will spend more time at home when the boys begin their education so they can lead a more settled life.

He tells the Front Row arts programme on Britain's BBC Radio 4, "When Zachary goes to school and when Elijah goes to school... I'll have to take a look at my touring schedule.

"They're always on tour with me. Zachary has been to Australia twice before he was two. When they start school of course they can't come on tour. I can't be away from them that long, and things will have to change."

hi, how are you sir elton john? what is it? How are you? Hope you're having a cool summer, finally its here. I'm ok, alright, fine. I didn't move to another apartment, too expensive. I didn't get it. I sent pictures of my father's funeral to my daughter.brother Russell got some, and pretty soon I'll send some to my brother George.Yeah, they turned out, I'm happy about that. The Canada Day celebrations it was nice to have a holiday, I actually had fun. behind dad's home, I still chase away all of George' and Sonjia' culprits. Oh yeas we are fhaving a time of it. the neighbour was so nice to tune up my bike, I can't believe it. that was so nice of people do this. I'll give him some small money when I get paid I told him. I am without work, yea my life was listening to the music, hearing the songs of how nice it is to make something in life. My children they know I did get a picture of my daughter, she's gotten all my words, expressed herself with a photograph of looking like she was when we were living in Zhoda in our home. what are you doing? Ogopoggo is still sitting there, we have to be ahead of time, not behind. I'll go listen to your CD new album called The Diving Board. I heard KISS band is coming to Vancouver, wow!! wow!! Gene Simmons!! and isn't the sweetness of life? or what, eys of course, that is KISS my God I always wanted to see them and my kids to see them, $30.00 tickets isn't he sweet? I mean that is a man who knows what he's talking about.! giving us himself when he'darn well knows how much we love the band KISS. no kidding, thats what life is for. I hope you're well, I heard you're changing Uros, that'll be nice for you. so take care, being one day maybe you're going to meet Fiona? I am losing weight, getting into shape, I think it must be a different stage of life. I set my pictures into my album last night, it was hot, so I turned on the fan, !! I mean hot oven heat, my cucumbers are beautiful as plants go, crawl up, tomotoes are thicker tall bushy style, my pansy flower I re-rooted (took these flowers to Calgary returned cuz of the rains pourings that freightened me.the pansy dwarfed itself by being out of pot 3 days or 2, then it became (I'm Darwin) smaller flowers with scratches of lilac.instead of very large blossoms of fingers sized blooms. interesting isn't it? you can pull out roots, desize and change colours of bloom. Calgary flooded but they have gone on with Calgary Stampede. It's finally going away now, the devistating flood scar. I thought I heard gossip of your coming out, but I guess so far its not true. I'm fine. take care. don't worry, I'm good either way, staying and being alone waiting for my daughter to come out, Course I took it very hard that my father passed away, but I'll be alright, I dont' think angels die do you? take care.
