Hi, guys and gals. Question: Who was Danny Bailey? Taupin's lyrics show him to be a moonshiner. Was he killed by Dillinger? Did he really exist? What's the story? Thanks for your help, again, once more.

If memory serves me right, Danny Bailey is just an invention by Bernie Taupin.

Danny Bailey is indeed an invention by Bernie Taupin!
In the DVD "Classic Albums - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" (released by Eagle Rock Entertainment) he says about the song: "Danny Bailey is John Dillinger, or Pretty Boy Floyd... He is my composite gangster. I just love creating characters!"

actually, there was a Chicago gangster that was captured in Kentucky. Around 1938. They thought he had something to do with the Valentine day murders
