Elton John on whether “The Bitch Is Back” is about him. OC:…there wasn’t. :10
”No absolutely not. I don’t think we’ve ever written a personal song about anybody. There’s no sort of second meaning to ‘The Bitch Is Back’ at all. Maybe I’m wrong, you’d have to ask Taupin, but I’m sure there wasn’t.”
One of Elton John's best hard rock cuts, This song was banned on several radio stations, in the United States and elsewhere, due to the use of the word "bitch".SERIOUSLY!!!! I DONT OWN ANY COPYRIGHTS!!!
