About Elton John

Elton John was the biggest pop star of the '70s, grabbing headlines and generating hits throughout the world. As it turned out, this was merely the first act in a remarkable career that kept him at the top of the charts for decades. Initially marketed as a singer/songwriter, John soon revealed he could also craft Beatlesque pop and pound out rockers with equal aplomb. He dipped into soul, disco, and country, as well as classic pop balladry and even musical theatre. His versatility, combined with his effortless melodic skills, dynamic charisma, and flamboyant stage shows, became his calling cards; many of his songs -- including "Your Song," "Rocket Man," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" -- have become contemporary pop standards.
