Who are you born into? Elton John and his ParentsPictolic
On March 25, 1947, Sheila Fairbrother of Pinner, Middlesex, had a son, Reginald Kenneth Dwight, who later became known as Elton John. Sheila married Elton's father, Stanley Dwight, when Elton was 6, and divorced him when Elton was 14. She later became the wife of local artist Fred Fairbrother, with whom she raised young Elton. The whole family seemed to be eccentric.
This photo shoot of Elton John with his family took place in London in 1971. The photo shows Elton's mother and his stepfather: his mother has not spoken to his father for a long time.
Nevertheless, both Elton's parents and his father have invested a lot in his musical career. His father gave him a musical gift: he was a capable musician and once played the trombone in an ensemble. His mother loved music, collected records, and, by Elton's own admission, he got to know rock ' n ' roll and fell in love with it, listening at her insistence to the family's extensive record collection.
And when Elton decided to become a musician, and his father discouraged him, his stepfather supported him in the pursuit of his dream. So no matter how eccentric the musician's family was, his parents and stepfather did everything they could for his career in show business.
