Drummer Jeremiah Fraites bought suggesting that Elton is not really a Lumineers fan…
Elton John gave The Lumineers‘ drummer Jeremiah Fraites a slap for the Grammy Awards recently (February).
The band’s singer Wesley Schultz recalled the memorable incident during an interview on Gordon Smart’s Xfm show yesterday (February 24).
Schultz explained: “We were nominated for two main awards but didn’t win. As we were walking in Elton John stopped us and said she has been hearing our album and became a fan. Our drummer said, ‘There’s no fucking way you happen to be fan!’ Elton just slapped him with a backlash and put him straight. It was obviously a special moment.” Check Ophelia piano sheet music here.

The unexpected slap wasn’t Elton John’s only moment of mischief throughout the Grammy Awards in LA on February 10. Mumford and Sons’ banjo player Winston Marshall later said that the rock legend attemptedto calm his nerves throughout the event by telling him never to get his cock out.
Meanwhile, a business-minded Elton John has announced that she will to discharge new album in September. He described the album, titled ‘The Diving Board’, as “the most piano-oriented of my career”.
