Sir Elton John Recalls The Time He Threw Oranges At Bob Dylan

Sir Elton John has been in the industry for decades, so it’s no surprise he has a fair few stories to tell.

The musician, who has been busy promoting his new book Me, appeared on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, where he spoke to the host about his love of cocaine, his partying days, and his farewell gigs.

John was also asked about the time he once played charades with Bob Dylan, the game ending with John throwing oranges at his fellow singer-songwriter.

John shared, “Here was the greatest poet in the world [but] could he do ‘Sounds like? Two syllables?’

“So I threw oranges at him. They were small, they were satsumas!”

John, who shares two sons Elijah, 6, and Zachary, 8, with husband David Furnish, also discussed once letting Stevie Wonder drive his snowmobile. These stories feature in the memoir, of which John says, “It’s my life as it happened, I’m ashamed of some of it, I’m proud of some of it.”

“But even though the bad times happened and it took me a long time to get through it, it made me the person I am now, thank God.”
