Elton John: A Successful and Confusing Life

Advertising Information for vagmusic

If you really admire Elton John, you will find here some important details about this singer and composer. Born in 1947, he is one of the greatest survivors of pop music, and at the age of four years old, he started playing the piano. Besides, when he was 11, he got a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music. Unfortunately, he had no success in an audition as lead singer for rock bands.

He then joined with a duo that changed his name to Elton John. After recording the album Tumbleweed Connection, he became a very successful pop artist of the 1970s. Indeed, he had to overcome a stream of different pop fads as punk and the New Romantics to be the Britain’s most internationally known musician.

An unexpected piece of news for many people was the fact that he announced publicly that he was bisexual, and actually, he discovered that he was homosexual. In the 1970s and 1980s, he underwent a difficult situation because of drug and alcohol addiction as well as bulimia, but he was able to go through it. He is not only known for his music but for being a campaigner for AIDS research, and he is always working on modern music. For this reason, he enjoys himself from artists like Coldplay, Eminem, Robbie Williams, and Radiohead.
