Bio

Elton John is a multiple Grammy- and Academy Award-winning English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist.

In a career spanning four decades, Elton John has sold over 250 million records and has over 50 Top 40 hits, making him one of the most successful musicians of all time.

He was one of the dominant commercial forces in the rock world during the 1970s, with a string of seven consecutive #1 records on the U.S. album charts, 23 Top 40 singles, 16 Top 10 ones, and six #1 hits.

His success had a profound impact on popular music, and contributed to the continued popularity of the piano in rock and roll.

Key musical elements in John's success included his melodic gifts matched with the contributions of his lyricist partner Bernie Taupin, his rich tenor and gospel-chorded piano, aggressive string arrangements, and his flamboyant fashion sense and on-stage showmanship.

In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked John #49 on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

He continues to be a major public figure, and has been heavily involved in the fight against AIDS since the late 1980s.

He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 and was knighted in 1998, and has remained an enduringly successful artist.
