Elton John: Legendary Pop Star

Now known as Sir Elton Hercules John, the English pop/rock star was born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on March 25, 1947 in Pinner, England. When he was only four years old, he began playing the piano and became a child prodigy, able to play any melody he heard by ear. When he was 11 years old he attended the Royal Academy of Music on scholarship. He remained there for six years before leaving in order to pursue a career in music. In 1960 he formed a band with friends known as The Corvettes. Several years later he answered an audition call and met Ray Williams of Liberty Records. At that initial meeting he was provided with lyrics written by Bernie Taupin and requested to write music for them. After doing so, he formed a partnership with Taupin that continues decades later. “Scarecrow” was recorded in 1967, the first Elton John/Bernie Taupin song. Six months later the now famous musician officially changed his name to Elton John; taking the name from saxophonist Elton Dean and Long John Baldry.

Although his debut album, Empty Sky, did not do well, during the 1970s Elton John went on to achieve phenomenal success with seven consecutive #1 records. He also racked up 23 Top 40 singles. The following decade proved to be chaotic, with John losing his voice while touring Australia. After undergoing throat surgery he was able to perform once again in Madison Square Garden in 1988. Two years later he checked himself into a hospital to fight his addictions to drugs and alcohol as well as his problems associated with bulimia. In 1994 he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. After the death of Princess Diana, he sang an altered version of Candle in the Wind at her funeral and later recorded it. He won a Grammy Award for the single. The following year, in1998, he was knighted for his charitable work, mainly for AIDS, and became Sir Elton John.
