„Podívejte, rockovou hvězdou se může stát každý, když se na to dostatečně soustředí. To je právě na rock and rollu tak skvělé, že i člověk jako já se může stát hvězdou.“

—  Elton John

„They're not "normal" songs. None of her songs have been "normal." She's just who she is, she's unique. She's — a mystery. She's the most beautiful mystery.“

—  Elton John

The Kate Bush Story (2014)
Kontext: They're not "normal" songs. None of her songs have been "normal." She's just who she is, she's unique. She's — a mystery. She's the most beautiful mystery. … Let me tell you a story: when I had my civil partnership, nine years ago, in 2005, and Kate — we invited Kate, we didn't think she'd come but she came, she came with her husband Danny, and there were a lot of very famous people in that room, there were like 600 people — and all anybody wanted to meet was Kate Bush. I mean, musician, anybody — they couldn't believe Kate Bush was there. She's kind of an enigma.

„That record she did with Peter Gabriel saved my life.“

—  Elton John

On Kate's duet with Peter Gabriel on the song "Don’t Give Up", on his album So (1986)
The Kate Bush Story (2014)
Kontext: That record she did with Peter Gabriel saved my life. That record helped me get sober. So she played a big part in my actual downfall and kind of "rebirth'" as it were. That record helped me so much. I never told her that, but it did.

„Have mercy on the criminal
Who is running from the law.
Are you blind to the winds of change?
Don't you hear him any more?“

—  Elton John

Have Mercy on the Criminal
Song lyrics, Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player (1973)

„Don't give us none of your aggravation,
We had it with your discipline.
Saturday night's alright for fighting,
Get a little action in.“

—  Elton John

Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting
