Elton John Booked To Host SNL

The hosts and musical guests we'd bother tuning in for or a setting the DVR to catch on Saturday Night Live are few and far between. April 2 will be an exception. The late-night weekend fixture has booked Elton John to host and be the musical guest.  And we would probably not have bothered to make a point of watching Elton either if he hadn't recently begun to reassess his musical legacy.  His Union album with Leon Russell and recent comments that he is done writing pop hits at least raise the possibility that he intends to get back to writing and performing songs like the ones he wrote and performed before Captain Fantastic took him on a decades long tangent of increasingly banal albums.  There are no guarantees he won't revert to more of the SOS, but the fact Leon Russell will perform with him April 2 probably makes it an appearance worth checking out.
