Elizabeth Taylor remembered: Elton John
British singer, songwriter and producer Sir Elton John remembered his good friend Dame Elizabeth Taylor, the Hollywood icon who died Wednesday of congestive heart failure at age 79.
"We have just lost a Hollywood giant; more importantly, we have lost an incredible human being," John said in a statement Wednesday.
The two not only shared courtly prefixes but also a passion for promoting AIDS awareness.
Taylor had began her work with AmFAR, the American Foundation for AIDS Research even earlier, in 1985.
