Born on March 25, 1947 Pinner, Middlesex, England as Reginald Dwight, the son of a flight lieutenant in the Royal Air Force. Despite his father's preference for discipline, both his parents were musically inclined. Reginald leaned toward a career in music though, and he had great hope because of the great potential he showed playing the piano and earned a scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music. His parents would divorce as his father became more distant and his mother married Fred Farebrother, who proved a supportive stepfather.
The transition from Reginald to Elton started with a gig playing piano at the local pub as a part of the group Bluesology. The band backed blues and R&B performers from the United States. It was here he found the inspiration for his name, combining the name Elton Dean and Long John Baldry. Now Elton John in 1967, he teamed with Bernie Taupin and first became a songwriting duo for DJM Records. Elton's legendary career as a performer began with Elton John, his second album. The album peaked at number five in the UK and number four in the U.S. and went Gold in the U.S.
He scored his first top ten hit with "Your Song" in 1970. Soon after he scored with hits that would more than stand the test of time - "Tiny Dancer", "Rocket Man", "Crocodile Rock", "Daniel", "Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting", "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road", "Candle in the Wind", and "Bennie and the Jets". This string of hits all came before 1975. The singer had 10 straight platinum records in the 1970s. Perhaps the biggest of these albums was Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
Elton John became known for his flamboyant live shows and still scored the occasional hit, like "Something About the Way You Look Tonight" and "Candle in the Wind". His most recent work includes a residency in Las Vegas for the Million Dollar Piano, his second residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. They also include another tour.
