    Sir Elton Hercules John (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight, March 25, 1947,) an honorary knight of the United Kingdom, is a legendary popsinger, composer and pianist who, with writing partner Bernie Taupin, is estimated to have racked up over 200 million single and albumsales worlwide since his first release in 1967, over 60 million coming in the US alone. Being extremely diverse when it comes to musicallytastes he has dipped into many genres including pop, rock, country, gospel, blues, and soul. Along with his exceptional vocals he is notedfor reinventing piano playing by increasing its forefront popularity in rock.Sir Elton shot to fame in the early- and mid-70s, combining hit singles like 'Rocket Man' and 'Tiny Dancer' with an increasigly flamboyantfashion sense and stage show. 1973 saw him release what is considered by many to be his greatest album, the double-LP 'Goodbye YellowBrick Road,' an obvious nod to classic film 'The Wizard of Oz.' It spawned hit singles 'Bennie & The Jets,' 'Saturday Night's Alright (ForFighting),' and the best selling single of all time, 'Candle In The Wind,' as well as the classic 'Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding.After the release of Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy in 1975 the first album ever to enter immediately to Number 1 on theBillboard Charts along with Rock of the Westies that same year to reach Number 1, Elton John had arguably climbed to be the greatestMegastar in pop star in 1975. His dominance of the pop and rock worlds was now secure, and would remain until the late 70s, when hispopularity slowly began to decline, coinciding with personal problems, drug addiction and public admission of his homosexuality. Despitesuch, he still managed to crank out many popular singles in the 80's such as "I Guess That's Why they Call it the Blues", "Sad Songs SaySo Much", and "I'm Still Standing"He also is notable for such production in musicals such as "The Lion King", "The Road to Eldorado" and "Billy Elliot".In 1998, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and he continues to release music to popular acclaim to this date, achieving hit singles in2003, 2004 and 2005.Recently he has collaborated with life-long inspiration Leon Russel in 2010 on "The Union", and Kanye West the same year playing pianotracks on his album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy".He currently has finished recording his latest album "The Diving Board" set to launch sometime in 2013 « hide
