~  JOHN  Elton  ~


Angleterre  -  pop rock  -  ****


Elton John , chanteur / compositeur britannique, fait partie des chanteurs
à grand succès international, un artiste extravagant, qui assume totalement
son homosexualité et ses excentricités diverses. En 1969, il se lance dans
une carrière solo et connaît très vite un succès planétaire avec de célèbre
albums comme  
Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, Captain Fantastic ou
Blue Moves. Chaque chanson qu'il sort est un nouveau tube.
Apprécié de ses pairs et des grands de ce monde,
Elton John  est un
homme généreux et engagé. Il n'hésite jamais à prêter son image à de
grandes causes et notamment à la lutte contre le sida.
En plus de quarante ans de carrière, il a vendu plus de 250 millions
d'albums et 100 millions de singles, soit 350 millions de disques vendus.
Sa rencontre avec  Bernie Taupin  dans la fin des années 1960 détermine
sa carrière.
Elton John  fut véritablement reconnu par ses pairs après une
tournée de promotion de son album
Elton John aux États-Unis en 1970.
Son premier concert eut lieu au Troubadour de Los Angeles le 25 août.
Eric Clapton  et  Leon Russell  iront l'applaudir sur scène.
