Elton John Biography

 Reginald Kenneth Dwight was born on March 25, 1947 in England. He taught himself how to play paino at a young age of four. He became an instant success and prodigy in the music world as he received invites and scholarships to the top music programs in England, like the Royal Academy of Music in London. Although he and his father clashed in ideas of his future, John dropped out of school at age 17 and started playing with a group called Bluesology. With multiple members in the group, Reginald created a collaboration of a name and named himself Elton John. 

Come 1967, an advertisement from Liberty Records needed to hire a songwriter to which Elton John responded and landed the gig. He began working with Bernie Taupin and later the two left Liberty Record to join the DJM label the next year. By 1969, he had his own time to sing with the release of the album, "Empty Sky." Although little success followed, by 1970, he released his first hit song "Your Song." From that moment on, his success and stardom came easy. He released "Bennie and the Jets," "Crocodile Rock" and "Island Girl." Not only were his singles a hit, his albums "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" and "Rock of the Westies" peaked as top-selling albums. 

His songs were enough to gain popularity, but he reached even more acknowledgment with his stage performances. He was over-the-top, with grand accessories and costumes and put on a show like no one else of the time. Elton John mentioned that although he performed from behind the piano, he was going to make people look at him and with elaborate outfits and props, everyone's eyes were on him.  

After a hiatus in music, Elton John made a huge comeback with "A Single Man" in 1979. By 1994, Elton John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Queen Elizabeth II made him a Commander of the Order of the British Empire and so became Sir Elton John. Later that year, he began scoring musicals and worked with Tim Rice. Together the two made the soundtrack for "The Lion King" and one of the songs "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" was a success on its own. Elton John received his first Academy Award for Best Original Song and he and Rice received a Tony Award for Best Original Score in 2000 for the musical, "Aida."
