Elton John Background
Kenneth Dwight, Elton John excelled in music from a very young age, teaching himself to play piano when he was four years
old, and at only 11 years old, he attended the esteemed Royal Academy of Music in London on a scholarship. Despite his father's
wishes, he followed his passion to become a pop star and dropped out of school at 17. He joined a group coined Bluesology

Sky album. While that one didn't spark any buzz, his 1970 self-titled album did. No. 1 hit smashes Your Song, Crocodile Rock,
Bennie and the Jets and Island Girl further validated John's talent as a singer.

hits in the '80s, he still managed to make a dent on the charts with memorable tunes like Empty Garden (Hey, Hey Johnny) and
Little Jeannie. The '90s brought Can You Feel The Love Tonight, which earned John his first Academy Award triumph. The song
was used on the soundtrack for The Lion King (1994). Also around this time, John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall

Elton John Concert
Much of Elton John's fame was rooted in his famous live shows! An interview with W revealed why he chose
the digs he did; he said, "I wasn't a sex symbol like Bowie, Marc Bolan or Freddie Mercury, so I dressed on the humorous side,
because if I was going to be stuck at the piano for two hours, I was going to make people look at me." His surreal, exuberant
style won over legions of rock and pop fans, and is still cited by artists like Gaga as a major influence on their work.
