Elton John has still not seen 'Bohemian Rhapsody' movie

The two biggest music movies in the last few years were Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and Elton John's Rocketman. Despite being friends with Freddie Mercury, Elton can't bring himself to see the film.

Elton says,"I haven't seen Bohemian Rhapsody because I was so close to Freddie. It would be too painful for me."

Even though Rocketman has been out since May, Queen guitarist Brian May just saw it over the weekend, as he flew from London to Nashville for his performance tonight (Tuesday) at the James Burton & Friends benefit concert alongside Joe WalshSammy Hagar and others.

"Although I wanted to see more of the joy and triumph of Elton -- such a wonderful performer, I missed crying those tears of joy," says May.

But, on the same flight, May did experience tears of joy watching Pavarotti, the documentary on the late opera singer Luciano Pavarotti.

"Oh my God -- just a documentary -- but put together with such exquisite skill by Ron Howard -- it kills. We see glorious talent, mighty passion -- but best of all we see a MAN -- in all his frailty, passion and pain -- and ultimate triumph."

May adds that he watched one other film on the flight in which he "cried buckets in the happy bits" -- Toy Story 4.
