NEW YORK (AP) - Elton John says he's back on his feet after being sidelined for the flu and an E. coli bacterial infection.
The entertainer spoke about his recovery before Monday's annual benefit for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which honored former President Bill Clinton and Sharon Stone among others.
Earlier this month, John was forced to cancel shows after becoming ill. He says he hated having to cancel performances but he's fine now and "bouncing around."
Among those in attendance were Anderson Cooper, Tony Bennett and Daniel Craig.
