Watford ‘saved’ Elton’s life

British rock legend Elton John says Watford football club were his unlikely saviour as he experienced the “worst period of my life” in the 1980’s. The 72-year-old Englishman -- known for his hits such as ‘Rocket Man’ and ‘Goodbye Yellowbrick Road’ -- has been chairman of ‘The Hornets’ twice. He says in his new autobiography ‘Me’ Watford “might have saved my life” in his first spell as chairman (1976-1990) when they enjoyed huge success under the late Graham Taylor rising from bottom of the old fourth division to the heights of being runners-up to Liverpool in the 1982/83 title race and beaten by Everton in the 1984 FA Cup final. “I was chairman throughout the worst period of my life: years of addiction and unhappiness, failed relationships, bad business deals, court cases, unending turmoil,” he writes. “Through all of that, Watford were a constant source of happiness to me. For obvious reasons, there are chunks of the eighties I have no recollection of -- but every Watford game I saw is permanently etched on my memory.”
