In about a year and a half Elton John and Bernie Taupin will celebrate a rather stunning achievement: 50 years working together as a songwriting team. "That makes me immensely proud," says Taupin, phoning in from his California home. "The fact is that we're still actually making records. We're still a viable team. I think we're probably the longest-lasting songwriting team in music history. I guess you could also say Jagger/Richards, if they make a new record, that is."

But the Rolling Stones have only made a single record in the past 18 years (and even then, it was questionable how much Mick and Keith actually wrote together), but Bernie and Elton have never slowed down. Their new record, Wonderful Crazy Night, hits stores on February 5th. We spoke with Taupin about the new album, his life as a painter, his rock-solid friendship with Elton John, why he's never heard a Kanye West song, and why he hasn't even thought about retiring.
