There will be no Candle in the Wind, or any breeze period period in Elton John’s hotel room at Brazil’s five-star hotel Ouro Minas as he insists on keeping it at 60.8F. Fair enough. We’ve heard about celebs and their riders when it comes to performances. Some more outrageous than others, but we gotta tell ya, this one from the Rocket Man, put us on pause.

We're sure he didn't bring them all with him, so couldn't a special case do? A safe in the hotel? Did this need to go as far as an entire room?
