Born Reg Dwight, one of Watford's greatest enthusiasts has entertained for the past thirty-six years .
A gifted piano player, Elton John started off by being involved in a band called Bluesology, before starting a song-writing partnership with Bernie Taupin and acting as a session musician. He released his first solo album in 1970.
Since then, Elton has enjoyed a mixture of heady success and iconic fandom. Like David Bowie and Cliff Richard, he has collaborated with a variety of musicians from John Lennon, to Queen, to George Michael, to Burt Bacharach, to Eminem, to The Who, to Billy Joel, to Morcambe and Wise! ;)
His songs are usually melody driven, with lyrics that not only hit at the heartstrands, but also have a poetry of it's own.
