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.

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


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

Article problems[edit]

I started trying to fix the glaring issues, but it's too much and I don't really care about Taupin that much. In any case, there are sources used here that are not reliable, there's a lot of unreferenced stuff that needs references, and the tone is inappropriate/promotional in some cases.
