Elton John hardly needs an introduction. Depending on your age, you may see him as a flamboyant stage act, pounding the piano in a bedazzled costume and eyeing the audience behind star-shaped glasses. Or maybe he's a Disney icon, asking "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" and celebrating the "Circle of Life." Or maybe he's a hip senior citizen spreading the "Ghetto Gospel" with the late Tupac or jamming with Queens of the Stone Age. He's all of those things, plus a champion of gay rights, an AIDS activist, a winner of Grammy, Tony, and Academy Awards – and one of the best-selling musicians in the world. He's even a knight (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire).

With decades of hits and over 30 albums under his (most likely fabulous) belt, there's a lot to learn about this lad from Middlesex. Can you tell the fact from the fiction?
