hmxhenry;4942284 said:Hey gang,
Winner of six Grammy Awards and countless other accolades, singer-songwriter Elton John is the definition of a living music legend. On December 18th, three of the entertainer’s songs will be available on the Rock Band Music Store as singles or as part of the “Elton John Pack 01”!
One of John’s most rocking tracks, “The Bitch is Back,” from 1974’s Caribou, kicks off the pack. The sweeping ballad “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” the first single from Caribou, will also be available.

These hits and more are also available as part of Elton John’s greatest hits compilation, Rocket Man – Number Ones!
Additionally, during the week of the release of “Elton John Pack 01,” Rock Band Blitz players will earn double Coins any time they play any of the three tracks from the pack!

Stoked to see more music from The Rocket Man! (Hint One)
Hint two was a little more work. The Zombies intro featured some historical figures. The Highlander video points out that only one matters (JFK), the Kevin Bacon videos hints at the bacon game of degrees of separation.
JFK to Marilyn Monroe to Sir Eltons song Candle In The Wind.
I hope everyone enjoys this weeks DLC. Thanks for guessing!
