Elton John compares Eminem to Mick Jagger

Singer Elton John said seeing Eminem perform live in person was like watching Mick Jagger fronting the Rolling Stones.
The iconic ‘Rocket Man’ singer, who collaborated with the 45-year-old rapper on his hit single ‘Stan’ at the Grammy Awards in 2001, said he was left in awe of the star.
“I was just mesmerized by you and your performance; it made the hairs on the back of my arms stand up. It was like seeing Mick Jagger for the first time. I hadn’t really been exposed to that kind of rap in live performance before, and it was electrifying,” John told Eminem during a conversation.

Eminem hailed rapper Dr Dre as his mentor and credited him for the positive impact he has had on his successful career.
“I studied Dre a lot. I don’t know if you’d call it a mantra or what, but he believed that if you never go away, it’s hard for someone to miss you.
“And I realise that some people see going away as, ‘Oh, he’s irrelevant now,’ but I feel like if I don’t go away, I get sick of myself. It’s never been my thing to be in the spotlight all the time,” he said.
