Elton John in Humboldt?

Well, hard to say. Looks like it might have been an impersonator, according to the Ukiah Daily Journal. Someone who looked like Elton John was doing something in Ferndale earlier this month and some folks in Willits think he was in their town after he left Humboldt. You figure it out.

I figured it out. It was bogus.

Well, no need for evidence one way or the other, then. Thanks, Hank.

I saw this person claiming to be Elton at the Bayshore Mall.
I do admit he looked a lot like Elton John circa 1978, before he got old and fat.

I didn't really see him up close because I couldn't fathom why an international jet set celebrity who routinely hob nobs with royalty would be hanging out at the Bayshore Mall.

The Bayshore mall is located in south Eureka not the south of France.

I was a Q-nails and this guy came in for a manicure and people were making a big to do about his music and how excited they were to meet him so I asked him who he was and he said Elton John....I said "you are not!" He insisted he was and mentioned having business here and "I even have attorneys here". He looked sort of like him but not quite. I didn't believe it was him but he did get a manicure sitting right next to me. His accent seemed a little off and I couldn't see if he had that gap between his front you decide!

This guy goes by the name "Eldon john." He fains to be Elton even to the point of making promises he can't keep. I wonder how many people are fooled by this guy. I think it is cool that he looks like Elton, but he should not cross the line when it comes to making promises he cannot keep. The real Elton John has integrity!

HEHEHE, I was fooled by him yesterday, here in Manteca, CA...Couldn't believe he was here, stopped my car to talk to him...Boy do I feel like an idiot! I did ask him "what on earth brings you to Manteca?" he said "I'm here to buy some art"..So, I called this morning to the art store and the guy laughed and said "you, my dear have met the official body double for Elton John, named Eldon John...He owns a art gallery up north"....Sigh,,,,oh well, at least now I know! lol
