Elton John was born Reginald Dwight on March 25, 1947, in Middlesex, England. He began playing the keyboard at age three on his grandmother’s piano. He started formal lessons at age seven and won a scholarship to London’s Royal Academy of Music at eleven. His father, a fighting man, tried, unsuccessfully, to steer him to a more traditional career in banking. His parents divorced when he was 14. His mother then married Fred Farebrother, a local painter, who proved to be a caring and supportive stepfather.
Elton, his mother, and stepfather moved into an apartment where years later he would continue to live even at a time when he had four Top 40 albums in the United States. His stepfather helped a 15-year-old Reginald land a weekend gig performing piano at a local keyboard.
He was married to German recording engineer Renata Blauel from 1984 to 1988. He eventually came out of the closet and has been in a relationship with filmmaker David Furnish since 1993, and the two were joined in a civil union in 2005.
