Elton John Announces His Retirement.

Following this year’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour, the great Elton John will be retiring! (If you want to see him, you’ll need to head to Portland)

His music spans DECADES and will live on forever! If it feels like I JUST said this recently it’s because I DID! Yesterday when Neil Diamond announced this retirement due to his Parkinson’s diagnosis, today’s announcement from Elton John (while not as devastating in terms of his health) is still sad nonetheless.

Full story HERE.

 

(In no particular order, my 5 favorite Elton John songs. (SOOOOOOOO many to choose from) what was yours’?

 

About AJ

Your afternoon host AJ has been in Seattle for over 5 years and SO much has happened in his life since moving here. He and his wife of 7 years Nicole, had their first baby (Max...he is now 2) and they bought their first home here. When AJ isn't on the air, at a sporting event supporting one of our local teams (ESPECIALLY the Sounders and Seahawks) or hosting an event for one of the organizations that he works with including Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, March For Babies, Susan G Komen and Washington Trails Association, he is more than likely climbing a mountain! "I love everything this place has to offer, from world-class entertainment, to the incredible food to all of its natural beauty with so many amazing mountains and trails at our doorstep! I LOVE the Pacific Northwest and am proud to call it home and do what I love to do with an incredible group of people."
