Born as Reginald Kenneth Dwight, Sir Elton “Hercules” John is a musician, composer, pianist and a record producer who also acts sometimes. He was born on the 25th March 1947 (his current age is 68 years old), in Pinner, Middlesex, England. He was born as the first child to his father Stanley and mother Sheila Eileen Dwight, who were not married until he was 6 years of age. Growing up in a loving family, Elton studied at the local Pinner Wood Junior School, where he showed his musical talent as a young boy. Besides that, he also studied at Reddiford School and later at Pinner County Grammar School, where he was a decent student and uniquely talent in music. Thus, after his graduation he started to study music and though about making a career out of it. His father, who was also in a band during his youth however wanted Elton to make a living out of some decent job. But it was his father, who had introduced Elton to the record of best singers around that tie like Bill Haley and Elvis Presley. Thus, music was in his blood since a long time and he was certain about what he wanted to do. By 16, he had already started to perform on stage and was also giving concerts around his place. He was born as a British and raised as a Christian.

Elton is not the tallest of man, his height is only a 172 cm, which is about 5 feet and 8 inches tall. Growing up as a slim, athletic boy with glasses he has put on a lot of weight in recent years. His fair white face, blonde hair and childish smile with his chubby figure make him popular wherever he goes. A talented musician and actor, he is also very funny by nature and a helpful man who is respectful as well. As a result, he is a good company and makes friends easily. He is sexually gay, and came out openly about it in 1976, describing himself as bisexual. After the third gender was acknowledged, he came out openly as a gay since 1988, and thus his relationship list is known to all. He was in a relationship with Linda Woodrow from 1966, for two years. He was also rumored to be linked with John Reid, which is not sure till now. He was also in two different affairs, with Gary Clarke and Renate Blauel between 1982 and 1988. Currently, he is engaged to his boyfriend David Furnish since 1993 and the two are still together.
