Slim Shady is "doing brilliantly", according to the Rocket Man
Speaking to Danny Baker, John revealed his own problems with drugs had made him “arrogant” and “cocky”.
John added: “I’m there if people want my help. If people ask for help you tell them where to go but there’s no point advising people if they don’t want to do it.”
He told the newspaper: “He [Elton] understands, like, the pressure and any other reasons that you wanna come up with for doing drugs.
“So I told him, ‘Look, I’m going through a problem, and I need your advice.”
Danny Baker’s interview with Elton John is available to watch on the BBC iPlayer for the next seven days (until January 9).
