Elton John Says He Could Have Ended Up Like Whitney Houston

Elton told E! News, "I could have so easily ended up like Whitney Houston. It's a miracle I didn't because I'm sure I did as much cocaine as she ever did."
He credits getting clean to turning his life around instead of being six feet under. He added, "I would not be the person I am today if I hadn't. I wouldn't have my son Zachary, my husband David. I wouldn't have anything. I'd probably be dead."
