Success Comes Slowly - Bernard Taupin: Poetry Makes Music

writing

Bernard Taupin was raised in Lincolnshire, England, and early on fell in love with the written word. As a young boy, he read anything he could get his hands on, from Winnie-the-Pooh to The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. He soon graduated to writing stories himself. Though Bernie loved writing, he never thought he would pursue a writing career until one night he heard Bob Dylan's “The Times They Are A-Changin'” on his father's radio. The next day he quit his factory job and began to write musical lyrics.
