About Elton John

Solo Career

In 1967, beginning the solo career, Reg became Elton John. Having realized that it is easier to write music than words, Elton posted an ad in the London newspaper with the offer of cooperation. 22-year-old Bernie Taupin responded to his offer. Within eight years, there was no song of Elton, the author of lyrics to which would be somebody except Bernie. In 1968, the first track “I’ve Been Loving You” went out in England. In 1969, there was his 1st disk “Empty Sky” and the recording “It's Me That You Need”. He also wrote "Your Song" which got to ten charts of Billboard.

The first gold

The first disk was gold in the USA. In 1972 the collection “Honky Chateau”, which had “Rocket Man” and “Honky Cat”, became gold. The recording “Crocodile Rock” from “Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only the Piano Player” (1973) reached the first place in hit parade of Billboard while “Daniel” was the second.

Own Record Studio and Further Success

Elton created his own record company Rocket Records in 1974. His double disk “Good-bye Yellow Brick Road” won the 1st place in Billboard. Cash Box and Record World recognized him as the best performer of the year and together with Billboard called him the best performer of hits of the year. One more significant year was 1974. A gold album “Caribou” and Elton John's “Greatest Hits” (MCA), the songs "Bennie” and “The Jets" and a remake of “The Beatles’” composition "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" - all won the 1st places in Billboard.

Cinema Debut and Other Achievements

In 1975, he debuts at cinema, having played Pinball Wizard role in “Tommy” rock opera. One more gold disk released by MCA “Rock of the Westies” wins the 1st place in Billboard. Elton’ s star on the “Walk of Fame” in Hollywood appeared. In 1994, he gained the Grammy award for Disney's “The Lion King’’s song “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”. Other song from this disk, “Circle of Life”, became the hit MTV Top-20. However, the most outstanding success of this century was the track “Are You Ready For Love”.
