In addition to the fact that his songwriting collaboration with Bernard John Taupin is one of the most successful in history to date, his work and stage presence have significantly influenced popular music. He had a string of albums that topped the charts in the US and the UK during the 1970s, which was when his critical success peaked. Songs like Tiny Dancer, Rocket Man, Honky Cat, Crocodile Rock, and Daniel, along with many other back-to-back hits, helped him maintain his success in the 1980s and 1990s. He also had several hit singles and albums during both of those decades, and he has since continued to release new music.
Following an unfortunate mishap, the pop icon underwent hip replacement surgery. His Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour has been rescheduled for July of this year. He is not Superman; a musician with decades of experience working with John stated as much in 2021 to The New York Post. He said,
“You can only imagine the premiums, so I wonder how he even manages to get insurance to do these engagements. Instead of being stranded on the road, he ought to be at home with his husband and children. He will not be able to complete this tour, and that worries me.”
As per the insiders, John is dealing with an astonishing array of health issues, but he continues to travel to fund his extravagant way of life.

According to an insider, Elton John has gained so much weight that he must wear skin-hugging shapewear and corsets to fit into too-tight clothing.
The insider added that just two years ago, everyone was so proud of him when he dropped 40 pounds, but he’s gained every ounce back—and more. It’s all belly fat, according to Florida-based Dr. Gabe Mirkin. He claimed the singer must be 200 pounds now, and most of that weight is in his tummy.
The 75-year-old rock legend, who has been dieting for years, is currently filling up his stomach with all of his favorite meals, including spaghetti, bread, and rich sweets, and is likely weighing more than 200 pounds, according to a source.
