I don’t know how much time I’ll have on Earth after that.” Every day is “a bonus”.
“Will miss the reactions of the fans”

I don’t want to be far from my family.” What he will miss, however, are the “reactions of the fans”. “You make my soul jump.” But he is now ready to hand over to the next generation of musicians. “The future lies in new music,” describes Elton John.
