Sir Elton John ‘Sacks Publicist of 35 Years Ahead of Comeback’

Sir Elton John reportedly fired his publicist of 35 years because he is “hugely frustrated” about lacklustre music sales.
A new report claims John’s husband David Furnish axed publicity specialist Gary Farrow the week before Christmas in a bid to ensure the 68-year-old music legend’s forthcoming album Wonderful Crazy Night is a huge success.
“David wants to make Elton happy by helping him achieve this – and he’s being very single minded about it,” a source told UK newspaper The Mirror. "Basically, it’s David’s way or the highway. Staff he feels have not helped Elton’s goal have all gone – the latest is Gary.
"David saw his input as being negative.”
Murray Chalmers, who works with Kylie Minogue and Coldplay, is said to have replaced Farrow as John’s new publicist.
In addition to desiring fresh blood in the publicity arena, speculation is rife John wants to rival the success of the recent comebacks posed by his peers.
“Elton is hugely frustrated that he’s making some of his best music for years and it just isn’t selling like it did,” the source explained.

“What’s worse is he’s seen other golden oldies topping the charts, like Rod (Stewart), (David) Bowie, (David) Gilmour, Jeff Lynne’s ELO and even Keith Richards.
“He’s a hugely competitive guy and it’s driving him mad that he isn’t matching them.
“Elton is very proud of his new music and wants as many people to enjoy it as possible.
John’s upcoming record Wonderful Crazy Night, his 32nd studio album, will be released in February 2016.
