Los Angeles, Feb 9 — Singer Elton John is mentoring a group of Irish boys who impressed him with their music.

The 65-year-old came across the band The Strypes after seeing a YouTube video of their performance, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"They're 15 and 16-year-old boys from Ireland, and someone sent me a video of them playing on YouTube... and here they are playing this Bo Diddley song, 'You can't judge a book by its cover'," John said during a US chat show.

"They have a knowledge of R&B and blues at 16 years of age that I have only amassed in my 65 years," he added.

John was so impressed by the young boys that he even compared them to Beatles and Rolling Stones.

"They're playing music like the Rolling Stones used to or the Yardbirds or the Beatles, and it's astonishing to find kids of that age wanting to play music like that; most kids wanna be Justin Bieber. They're just like a breath of fresh air," John said.

"They came for Sunday lunch to my house... They walked through the door and you think, 'God, these boys are stars; they look like the Beatles'. They're amazing and they're great musicians," he added.
