Sir Elton John & Gary Barlow
May bank holiday found us early doors in Abbey Road Studios with Sir Elton John and Gary Barlow. We were there to document the pair recording the their new duet Face to Face from Gary’s new long player.
Professional to the hilt, there was no hanging about as they nailed the track in super fast time with Sir Elton making the dash to Wembley to see his beloved Watford in the Championship play off final.
