Born to Rock

Did You Know?

Though Elton and his father were anything but close, they did share the common love of soccer, or football as it's called in the United Kingdom. All of the Dwights were actually very fond of the sport. Their favorite team was Pinner's local club, Watford.

In later years, once Elton John had reached the peak of his career, he bought the team. During his brief retirement from performing in 1977, the only time he went in public was to watch his favorite team play football.
