Elton John

Elton John is a British pianist, singer and songwriter, who has, over a long time, become one of the United Kingdom’s best-selling artists of all time. He was born on March 25, 1947 in Pinner, Middlesex, to Stanley Dwight and Sheila Eileen. He attended Pinner Wood Junior School, and Pinner County Grammar School.

 

MUSICAL CAREER

Reginald Kenneth Dwight who changed his name to Elton John signaled his passion for music at an early stage. He won a scholarship to the prestigious Royal Academy of Music when he was 11.

By 1962, he had formed Bluesology. Elton and his songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin, met in 1967, after they had both answered an advert for songwriters. Elton and Bernie were later hired in 1968 by Dick James of DJM to become staff songwriters. They both became long-term song-writing partner as they wrote songs for many artists including Roger Cook and Lulu.

To date, Elton has won five Grammy awards and in 2013, the first Brits Icon for his impact on British culture.

 

MUSICAL RECOGNITION

Elton came out with his debut album, Empty Sky in 1969. He soon backed it with a follow-up album, Elton John, released in April, 1970 on DJM Records/ Pye Records in the UK and Uni Records in the US. The album reached at number 4 on the US Billboard 200 and number five on the UK Albums Chart becoming his first hit album. "Border Song," the first song from the album peaked at number 92 on the US Top 100, and the second single "your song" became Elton's first hit single by reaching number 7 in the UK Singles Chart and number 8 in the US.

In 1972, he released his first US number 1 album, Honky Château. Following was seven consecutive US number one albums. The pop album, Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player, came out in 1973, it includes his first song to reach the US Billboard Hot 100 number 1 position, "Crocodile Rock." Later in the same year, he released, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, which remained at number 1 for two months.

Elton formed his own record label, The Rocket Record Company. But instead of releasing his own records, he signed a millions of dollars contract with MCA in 1974. He released his Greatest Hits album - a UK and US number 1 album - on MCA, which was certified Diamond by the RIAA for selling over 16m copies in the US.

In September 1997, at the funeral of Princess Diana, princess of Wales. Elton performed "Candle in the Wind 1997," it became the fastest and biggest-selling single of all time. It sold over 33 million copies worldwide. It was the best-selling single in UK Chart history, in Billboard history and actually became the only single ever certified Diamond in the United States.

Elton released his 32nd studio album, Wonderful Crazy Night, on 5 February, 2016. He also played a major role, as Elton John, in the action movie Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which was released in 2017. It was announced, On 24 January, 2018, that Elton would embark on a farewell tour. This would mark his retirement from touring. 

 

PERSONAL LIFE

Elton John and Renate Blauel married in February 1984 and the two divorced four years later.  He came out as gay later in 1988, and in 1993, he began a relationship with David Furnish. 

On 21 December, 2005 when the Civil Partnership Act came into force, Elton John and David Furnish were amongst the first in the UK to form a civil partnership.

Also, in 2014, when gay marriage became legal, Elton and Furnish got married. They have two children Zachary Furnish-John and Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John through surrogacy.
