1947: Singer-songwriter Elton John, the Grammy-winner best known for his more than 50 Top 40 hits, including "Rocket Man," "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road," "Candle in the Wind" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," is born Reginald Kenneth Dwight in Pinner, Middlesex, England. His "Candle in the Wind 1997," a version of the song he recorded as a tribute to Princess Diana, is the best selling single in the history of both the UK Singles Chart and the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
