Best comment in this thread.

Anyway, Stevie sings on Elton John album, 1981Ėinteresting, an unexpected pairing. Stevie sings on Elton John album, 2021Ėdull, manipulative calculation of the market.

Sorry, I couldn't help but think of the episode of of Last Man On Earth, where Fred Armisen(sp) is claiming to be a pianist(that apparently Stevie taught), playing Bennie and the Jets.

I know!

What's amazing is that she's willing to do that on camera. I'll bet she thinks she's killing it.

And she taught Christine how to play.

She should just pretend to play now, like Christine does.

You know what's crazy. I love her piano playing on Doing The Best That I Can. The amateur aspect of her playing actually adds to the song. She botches the lyrics which is a shame but I love this.

I don't BELIEVE that's her actually playing. Yes, I know you can see the hammers rising on the piano, but I still don't believe it.

Anything is possible. There is just something so wild about that video. Stevie is heavily sedated dressed as an 80's vixen with her back up singers tick tacking along on a grand piano singing about giving up (throwing the cards) in drug rehab and running away. The visual, audio, and words are riveting. Simply amazing.

IF it's her, she doesn't sound half bad...

So WHAT HAPPENED? Whose skills get worse over time(Christine's issues are geriatric)? Shouldn't Stevie's playing have gotten better, not diminished?

Maybe drugs are good, kids....

I thought what I heard, however elementary it was, was still beyond her skill set.

Clearly, she taught Christine how to play piano. Just ask her.
