In a new documentary on Elton John’s success in America, Elton tells a story about how someone once spiked his dinner with cocaine to improve his performance that night.
The documentary, “Madman across the Water: The Making of Elton John” will be on British TV this coming weekend. There’s no American TV listing yet.
Elton says, “I left at 7:30 in the morning and I thought, ‘I’ve never stayed up until 7:30 before but I feel really good!’ Years later, I learned they had put cocaine in my food.”
Three Dog Night singer Danny Hutton has already admitted to being the one who did it. He says, “I might have forgot to tell him. Well it certainly didn’t hurt him. He went on to be quite successful.”
