Elton John was already a Top 10 artist in the U.S. and U.K. when he, Taupin and Elton’s band began recording "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," but the project marked heightened ambitions underscored by its original release as a two-LP double set.
This year finds Sir Elton back in the headlines with a headlining performance at this June’s Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tenn., a critically acclaimed 2013 album, "The Diving Board," and plans to renew his wedding vows with partner David Furnish next month.

A close-up look at the biggest explosion in rock & roll history
Fifty years ago, the Beatles landed in the U.S., generating the biggest explosion rock & roll has ever seen. In the new issue of Rolling Stone (on stands Friday, January 3rd), contributing editor Mikal Gilmore examines just how the Fab Four arrived in the States facing media disdain and a clueless record label in the wake of the devastating assassination of John F. Kennedy — and still managed to conquer America.
On February 9th, 1964, Ed Sullivan famously intoned, "Tonight, the whole country is waiting to hear England's Beatles." Eight months later, the band had landed 28 records in Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart (11 in the Top 10), seen 10 albums released worldwide and been introduced to marijuana by Bob Dylan. But the band's voyage from Liverpool to New York City in '64 was filled with far more apprehension and stress than relaxation and glee.
