He won a piano scholarship when he was 11 to the Royal Academy of Music.

The Yellow Brick Road is an image taken from the movie The Wizard of Oz.

In 2008, Ben & Jerry’s created a flavor of ice cream in honor of Elton John called “Goodbye Yellow Brickle Road.” Made of chocolate ice cream, peanut butter cookie dough, butter brickle and white chocolate chunks, it was made to commemorate Elton’s first concert in Vermont (home of the ice cream makers) on July 21, 2008 at the Essex Junction fairgrounds.

At one point, John was responsible for 3% of all records sold on the planet.
