Shomporko Desk : Elton John has urged his fans to support their local independent record stores during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
Posting a video message on his social media, the pop veteran said that his local shop, Rough Trade West in Ladbroke Grove, is his favourite, and also praised Sydney’s Red Eye Records.
“Everything about records is magical to me and has been for the whole of my life,” John said.“Record stores are so important for the community, they’re a wonderful place to visit. The people behind the counter are so involved in what they do, they’re such experts. They love it.
