New Interview – Elton John: “I Love Eminem, He’s Dear Friend”



John hosts a semi-regular show on Apple’s Beats 1 station, titled the ‘Rocket Hour’. The show, which debuted in July 2015, will air once again tomorrow (October 18), and, ahead of the airing, a number of preview clips from the new episode have been shared by Apple.


Elton John has spoken about how he considers Eminem to be “a dear friend” of his.


While discussing fellow Beats 1 contributor Drake’s recent claim that Eminem was “the greatest rapper of all time”, the veteran musician was keen to agree with the Toronto rapper’s high praise.


“Eminem just did a show in which Drake introduced him in Detroit as ‘the greatest rapper of all time’. It’s very hard to disagree with that. I love him, and he’s a dear friend.”


The episode will air tomorrow, meanwhile listen to the preview below:
