Sonic Boom is easily one of the coolest record stores in all of Toronto, featuring two floors of all the vinyl you could ever ask for…even if you’re someone like oh I don’t know, Sir Elton John.
We've had a summer of fabulous guests but Elton John might be just be the only knight we'll ever have in Sonic Boom history. What an absolute and total delight ! pic.twitter.com/2kAlIWfxDi

In between stops on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour (which will be at Scotiabank Arena September 25th and 26th), the Crocodile Rocker must’ve been checking on his palatial estate in nearby Caledon and figured since he was in town he might as well add to his undoubtedly extravagant collection. Sonic Boom obviously respects the buyer-vinyl purveyor privilege so we don’t know what or how much the Rocket Man bought, just that he was gracious enough to pose for a picture with two lucky employees. Probably safe to say he didn’t go crate diving.
Being the music connoisseur Elton John is, I would venture to guess the ivory tickler extraordinaire was looking to get a listen of newly-crowned Polaris Music Prize winner Jeremy Dutcher’s Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa.
