    Elton John wants to help struggling U.K. music chain HMV by playing a series of special in-store shows.

    The company is thisclose to going under.

    Elton's rep said, "Elton has always been a big supporter of record shops. He will be doing something with HMV although as yet we cannot confirm what or when that would be."

    David Joseph, chief executive at the singer's label, said, "We’ve got lot of artist support for HMV. Last week one of our biggest global superstars said, 'Why don't we get a lot of the biggest artists to start doing gigs in HMV?' Just to turn up and say these are music stores, come and get your music here."

    What can you do to help save record stores?
