Both boosting the Boomer image and inspiring Boomers everywhere, Sir Elton, at 72-years old, is at the top of his game:
His final tour is sold out– on every date.
The movie about his life is nominated for a Golden Globe.
His memoir is a best seller.
He has postage stamps in his honor.
“I’ve probably had the greatest year of my career at 72 years of age.”
Elton is a dedicated “chart-watcher” so imagine his thrill, last month, when Billboard magazine, the publication he considers his “Bible,” confirmed that on the list of the 125 top artists of all time, Sir Elton was at the very top.
His 57 songs in Billboards Hot 100 (nine of them number one) placed him at #1 male solo artist category.
Along with that staggering statistic, he also holds the record for most consecutive years (30) charting a Top 40 hit.
These are remarkable achievements! All Hail Elton John!
Here he is singing “Crocodile Rock” last year at Madison Square Garden, 45 years since it was his first #1 single.
