Eltons early album were by far and away his best.... and Gus was ahge influential part in them ..... Elton really started sucking when he gave the coke up!

Also the great XTC album Nonsuch and who could forget Bowie's 'Space Oddity'

He will be remembered for time to come.....

I read about this today in the paper, it made me groan aloud.

I only met Gus once but I'll always remember it. He was charming, generous and kind to me.

I'm sad he died and his wife too...

The Guardian, Tuesday July 23rd 2002
"In Brief
Elton's sorrow over death
Sir Elton John said he was devastated by the death of music producer Gus Dudgeon, killed in a crash on the M4 near Reading on Sunday. Dudgeon, 59, produced hits such as Rocket Man for Sir Elton."
