Elton John wants to put his bitter feud with Rod Stewart to bed.
The Rocketman singer, 73, hopes that he and the Maggie May star, 75, are able to put their rivalry aside and Elton wishes to make amends with Rod by sending the rocker a Christmas card.
Elton – who has been at loggerheads with Rod for years – shared his hopes to make up with Rod as "life's too short" during an interview with Howard Stern on US radio station Sirius FM.
"Rod and I have always had this kind of rivalry but it's always been very friendly and funny and I love him to death," Elton told them on air.
"If I saw him in the street I'd give him the biggest hug. There's no point in carrying on vendettas. Life's too short."

Elton's festive gesture is not the first time that one of the musicians has attempted to patch up their friendship.
Earlier this year Rod told Chris Evans, on the radio DJ's podcast, that an olive branch he handed Elton over the summer was ignored.
The Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? singer said that he had invited the star and his family to his home in Essex, where he has a football pitch in his grounds.

Sir Elton allegedly never replied.
In October an insider dished about why Elton was unhappy with Rod.
"Rod's continued barbed and personal criticism of his recent successes has crossed a line beyond their usual friendly rivalry," a source told The Sun.
