Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis were all he ever heard as a child. He claims, “I never wanted to be anything else.” Elton John spent five years studying classical music at the Royal Academy of Music in London.

He received a junior scholarship at the Academy at the age of 11, but he was not a conscientious student despite enjoying playing Bach and Chopin.

Before the final examinations, he dropped out of the Academy and moved home with his mother and stepfather. It was there that he created the tunes that would begin his musical career.
