The 1970s may have seen no shortage of historic highs and lows spanning the gamut from the impeachment of President Richard Nixon to the landmark landing of Apollo 15 but among these pivotal moments, few truly compare to rise of Sir Elton John in a star-studded ascension of cosmic proportions. Kicking off his first world tour in 1970, the decade ahead would prove a fortuitous one for the Rocketman, chock full of milestones including but not limited to the international acclaim of such albums as Don't Shoot Me I'm Only the Piano Player featuring hits like "Crocodile Rock" and "Daniel"and Goodbye Yellow Brick Road which features classics "Candle in the Wind" and "Bennie and the Jets" among others. Though the decade also saw a 1977 retirement that would prove extremely short lived, John's claims come full circle with his ongoing "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" tour which seems to be more substantiated. That said, whether you'll be in attendance or are simply looking to relive the good old days, be sure to browse below for a photographic time capsule dedicated to the formative years of Sir Elton John which may be purchased as fine art prints from Morrison Hotel Gallery at all locations or through our convenient and complimentary web concierge serve.
