Elton John: Pop Music's Chameleon
Elton John was one of the most successful musical acts of the '70s, but he's remained in the spotlight ever since, thanks in large part to his versatility. Trafficking in rock, disco, pop, adult-contemporary, soul and even country, John has become an icon thanks to classic songs like "Rocket Man," "Your Song" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road." His vibrant live performances and outrageous costumes have only enhanced his reputation as a world-class entertainer.
John continues to find success while exploring multiple genres and media: He won a Grammy for the musical Aida, as well as an Oscar for his work in the Disney film The Lion King. His latest album, The Captain & The Kid, celebrates John's decades-long collaboration with songwriting partner Bernie Taupin.
