Elton John is expected to make a full recovery, so it could have been a lot worse. Following a series of concerts in South America, Sir Elton became violently ill on the flight home to the UK. According to his publicist, it was a "rare and potentially deadly" infection.
Elton John was admitted to the hospital for immediate treatment. He was released on Saturday and is now resting at home. The good news is that he's expected to make a full recovery.
Nine concerts were cancelled because of his illness, but he'll be singing Crocodile Rock again soon. He's scheduled to open a European tour in June.
