Rocket Man Falls and Returns - Fun Fact!

mother elton collection

Even before he could read, Elton could recognize almost every album cover in his mother's collection. Elton would later say that his first memory was looking through his parents' huge collection of records. He gives credit to his mother for his interest in music. “My mother introduced me to rock and roll,” he said. “One day she came home with ‘ABC Boogie’ by Bill Haley, and ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ by Elvis Presley. She has always been well up on what's going on.”
