Elton John Biography - King of Glamour and Pageantry
Born Reginald Kenneth
Dwight in Middlesex, this sensational singer songwriter chose the stage name Elton Hercules John in 1967 while performing
as a pianist in the group Bluesology. (He combined the first and last names of his band mates and took the moniker Hercules
in homage to the horse in TV show Steptoe and Son). He began carving his career as a singing star in the sixties but
achieved his big break in 1970 when he released two iconic albums - an eponymous effort (which often ranks as one of the greatest
records of all time) and the timeless Tumbleweed Connection. By the end of the year, Elton was one of the most popular
artists on the planet.
His partnership with song writing companion Bernie Taupin is one of the longest and most established
in music - the pair have collaborated on over 30 albums and have a special method for success that involves "never being in
the same room together". The globally lauded superstar has carved out a niche with his amazing pop rock albums, including
Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy and of course the timelessLP Goodbye Yellow Brick Road. Songs like
'This Train Don't Stop There Anymore', 'Crocodile Rock' and 'I'm Still Standing'have garnered a colossal fan base. Admirers
turn out in their thousands to see him perform live, so why not buy Elton John tickets now at StubHub UK?
