One of the most prolific and commercially successful artists in modern pop music, Elton John has won six Grammy Awards, five Brit Awards and sold more than 300 million records during a career spanning over half a century: his Candle in the Wind 1997 remains the bestselling single of all time. Rocket Man tells Elton’s story from his childhood as a piano prodigy to his early days playing West End gigs and his fortuitous meeting, and subsequent enduring partnership, with lyricist Bernie Taupin; it goes back to the song that started it all, Your Song, and charts Elton's meteoric rise to stardom, his challenges along the way, and his tireless work for many charities, including the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
