Iconic songs including "Crocodile Rock," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Daniel," and total record sales of well over 300 million have made Elton John one of the most beloved and successful musical artists of all time. As the biopic вЂRocketman’ hits theaters, the editors at LIFE present this special edition вЂElton John: The Songs, The Journey, The Life,’ a unique, colorful look at the flamboyant singer’s unlikely and epic rise to superstardom.
The story begins with "The Piano Player," a chapter when Reginald Kenneth Dwight, after a difficult childhood, began working as an unknown backing musician in the pubs of London. "The Unexpected Star" then details his profound transformation into Elton John, embraced first during the summer of 1970 by American audiences, after an infamous show at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. "The Rocket Man" and "A View from the Top" follow him through decades of great heights and great falls as he negotiates the trouble-in-paradise that is international pop/rock fame.
Finally, "Elton Plays On" tracks his continued activity and success in musical theater, writing for the movies, and the beginning of his three-year farewell world tour. Let this unique guide from LIFE take you back through the legacy of Elton John and the music that has formed the soundtrack for the lives of millions.
