Сэр Э́лтон Геркулес Джон (англ. Elton Hercules John, урожд. Ре́джинальд Ке́ннет Дуа́йт (англ. Reginald Kenneth Dwight); род. 25 марта 1947, Пиннер, Мидлсекс, Англия, Великобритания) — британский певец, пианист и композитор, радиоведущий и бывший президент футбольного клуба «Уотфорд». Рыцарь-бакалавр (1997), Командор ордена Британской империи (1995). Оказал заметное влияние на развитие лёгкого рока. На протяжении своей 50-летней карьеры продал более 250 млн пластинок; 52 сингла Элтона Джона входили в британский Топ-40. Занимает 49-е место в списке величайших исполнителей по версии журнала Rolling Stone. Один из самых коммерчески успешных исполнителей 1970-х годов: семь его альбомов занимали первые места в Billboard 200, 23 сингла входили в американский Топ-40, 16 попадали в первую десятку и шесть поднимались на первое место. Один из них, «Candle in the Wind 1997» (новая версия «Candle in the Wind», на этот раз посвящённая принцессе Диане), разошёлся 37-миллионным тиражом. Википедия

eltonjohnI was all set to record the audiobook for my memoirs. But when I sat down in the recording studio and started the process, I found the whole experience to be too emotionally overwhelming for me. So I reached out to @taron.egerton who nobly took up the charge and did a fabulous job.

eltonjohnI woke up in Adelaide to the sad news about Bob Willis. I spent many glorious times with him and the England team in Australia. A funny and gentle soul except when you had to face his bowling. My condolences to his family and loved ones.

eltonjohn#WorldAIDSDay is a day to remember everyone lost to the biggest epidemic of our time. An epidemic that has taken away over 32 million of our friends, family and those closest to our hearts and has infected 75 million people worldwide in the last 40 years.
Over 27 years ago, I founded @ejaf to do everything in my power to improve the lives of those living with HIV whilst leaving no one behind. That mission continues to this day. One year ago, I visited Grady Health's Ponce de Leon Centre and was reminded that Atlanta has an urgent HIV epidemic that reminds us that our work is not done. No more discrimination. No more HIV infections. No more AIDS deaths. No matter who or where you are.
eltonjohnI sat down with @AmazonMusic for a discussion and playlist feature to tell The Story Of Me 🎶 Have a listen - just Ask Alexa to “play Elton John: The Story of Me on @AmazonMusic”. #EltonJohnBook
