Daniel deletion[edit]

I deleted the statement that the song Daniel was "written about a high school classmate who died in Vietnam." Bernie had a classmate who died in a car accident, about which he wrote the song "Cold Highway." He has stated that Daniel was inspired by an American magazine article about a Vietnam vet who was blinded, not killed.Historydude58 (talk) 00:21, 3 February 2010 (UTC)

Bull riding[edit]

Someone might add something about Bernie's recent interest in bull riding. He owns several bulls and has become quite influential in the sport.

Riddles[edit]

According to the Levon article, Taupin writes complex riddles into his songs. Shouldn't that be mentioned? Tyharvey313

Picture[edit]

That really is a bad picture. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 209.222.194.54 (talk) 07:19, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
