As Elton John winds down his days performing in front of live audiences, his musical director and guitarist Davey Johnstone is recalling one of his favorite on-stage moments.

During a 1974 Thanksgiving Day concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Elton was joined on-stage by none other than John Lennon.

What many don’t know is that Lennon was fulfilling his end of a deal in which Elton had played piano on the Beatle legend’s single “Whatever Gets You Thru the Night.”
