|Â Ian Beck, the artist who designed the cover of Elton John's 1973 album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, wants the original artwork back. He says, "I think Elton kept the cover work... So if you are listening, Elton, I would like the Yellow Brick Road back, please, because I created it." A spokesman for Elton says, "Presumably if he does [have it], he paid for it, so it is his... A bit weird, isn't it, to ask for something back 38 years later?"
The 15,000 tickets for Elton's September 3rd show at the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts -- on the site of the original Woodstock festival in Bethel, New York -- sold out in 53 minutes Monday. Elton performs in Geneva, Switzerland tomorrow night.Â
