Elton John inspired by Bob Dylan
London: Veteran musician Elton John has revealed he saw Bob Dylan as an inspiration, and the legendary American singer`s 2006 album `Modern Times` persuaded him to keep making his own music.
The 66-year-old `Rocket Man` hitmaker is all set to release `The Diving Board`, his first album in seven years, reported Independent online.
"It floored me, that someone of Dylan`s great output could come across and make an album like that at his age, which was for me so timeless and sounded so brilliant," John said.
"I thought, `Well, if I`m going to make a record again, I`ve got to make it sort of sounding like that, because that`s how I like my records to sound`," he said.
