Elton Honours Molly Meldrum in Logies Video Message

The Logie Awards have paid tribute to music personality Ian "Molly" Meldrum, who suffered a severe head injury in a fall at his Melbourne home in mid-December 2011.

The audience at the ceremony heard from stars including Sir Elton John, Red Symons, John Paul Young and Delta Goodrem.

After the accident Meldrum spent five weeks at Melbourne's The Alfred hospital, before being transferred to Epworth hospital to be treated for post-traumatic amnesia.

The 66-year-old is still undergoing extensive rehabilitation but has returned to his Richmond home.

"I refer to Molly as the Godfather, he always watches over me and many other artists," Goodrem said.

After a video montage of Meldrum's TV career, Meldrum's friends Dannii Minogue and Michael Gudinski accepted his induction into the Logies Hall of Fame.

Sir Elton also paid tribute to the star, saying Meldrum had done more for the Australian music business than anybody in its history.
