Elton John Biography
No, neither birth name nor appearance or corpulent, thinning hair and noticeable tooth gap are classic attributes of a pop star. And yet the world owes Reginald Kenneth Dwight, who was born on March 25, 1947, in London’s suburb of Pinner, a treasure trove of unforgettable pop gems that despite his handicaps made him a true titan of popular music.
Reginald grew up after the early separation of his parents from Grandma Ivy, who recognized his extraordinary talent early and let him study piano and music theory for almost six years at the Royal Academy of Music. He founded with fellow students his first band and there were saxophonist Elton Dean and singer John Baldry. First own compositions brought Elton John, as he called himself forth, on the album of the popular combo Three Dog Night.
The first encounter with songwriter Bernie Taupin got the Elton hit machine going. “Your Song”, “Rocket Man”, “Crocodile Rock 1973”, “Daniel”, “Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting” to name just a few eternal pop-beads, come from this time in which the Dream Team John / Taupin apparently succeeded in landing one hit after the other. Within only one year, five albums in the US charts had broke a few records and were at the top for the next few months.
The little man on the piano with the big falsetto voice and the insightful lyrics and – sometimes – the blues, sometimes the rock inclined, won many fans, especially with his ballads – and with it he got himself more and more self-confidence. Oversized glasses and flashy outfits, a lavish lifestyle and a sometimes viciously sharp tongue became Elton John’s trademark, making him a pop icon.
Artistically, the unusual career of Elton John got a kink in the 80s. In his biography John not only openly reports on drug addiction and rampant parties, but also outs as a homosexual – despite an early, short paper marriage with the German sound engineer Renate Blauel.
Elton John, however, came back to old form. In the early 90s he was back, working with many pop stars, landing hits worldwide. In 1994 he composed the title song for the Disney movie “The Lion King”, for which he got the Oscar and in 1989 Queen Elizabeth II knighted him. In 1997, the title “candle in the wind” ran up and down the radio. In 2002, Sir Elton John received the honorary dowry of the school from which he once studied. He found his private happiness in 2005, the day British homosexual couples had given the ability to get into a marriage. Sir Elton John married his longtime partner David Furnish.
By the way:
“Candle in the Wind”, a song originally coined to Marilyn Monroe and remastered and re-released as Requiem in 1997 for Princess Diana, is the best-selling single of all time with 32 million copies sold. The profits Sir Elton John mostly donated to AIDS foundations.
Elton John Greatest Hits
To name the Best Of album by Elton John is certainly a challenge of a very special kind. The Major Universal Music has now managed to bring all rights holders together at the table and was therefore able to freely sell the most beautiful pearls for the first time.
His greatest successes were celebrated by Elton John in the 1970s. In 1971, he was the first artist since the Beatles, who was simultaneously represented in the US Top Ten with four titles. In the mid-seventies, he wrote John Lennon’s No. 1 hit “Whatever Gets You Through the Night,” which is not included on the Best Of. But his own songs were very successful in the charts.
“Your Song”, “Rocket Man”, “The Bitch Is Back”, “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”, “Candle In The Wind” and “Crocodile Rock” were hits of these years, which today almost everyone knows, and who have found a suitable place on this double CD. “Bennie and the Jets” is one of the first five-minute songs to be played on the radio anyway, in any Best Of compilation. Well documented the important role of copywriter Bernie Taupin, who wrote Elton John in the 70’s 23 Top 40 hits, fifteen Top 10 singles and five No.1 hits.
The chronologically ordered “Greatest Hits 1970-2002” bypasses the creative gap that Taupin left behind, after the two had split between 1976 and 1982. Nevertheless, when listening to CD 2, the idea that the little man named Elton John with glasses, hat and feather boa had his best time in the seventies, despite his “I’m Still Standing” (1983), is still urgent.
“I Want Love” and “This Train Do not Stop There Anymore” from the last studio album “Songs From The West Coast” prove that Elton John can still write wonderful ballads and sing. But at the latest, when the superstar Himself and LeAnn Rimes torment their voices on the slippery surface of wafting strings to the highest heights (“Written In The Stars”), you still want to complain about the selection: Where the hell is actually “Little Jeannie “?
