Story intro

Dressed in a flamboyant devil's outfit, Elton John enters an addiction rehabilitation session, and recounts his life in a flashback (The Bitch Is Back). Young Reginald Dwight grows up in 1950s Britain, raised by his cold, unaffectionate mother, Sheila, and more loving grandmother Ivy. Reginald is interested in music and hopes to perform for his father, Stanley, who takes no interest in his son nor his talent (I Want Love). Reginald begins piano lessons, eventually making his way into the Royal Academy of Music. Stanley abandons his family after Sheila has an affair with another man. Reginald develops interest in rock music, and begins performing in local pubs (Saturday Night's Alright). As an adult, Reginald joins the band Bluesology, which is hired to play backup for a touring American soul band. One of its singers recommends that Reginald write some songs and put his old life behind him if he wants to become a famous artist. This inspires Reginald to change his name to Elton John. Elton being the name of the saxophonist of Bluesology and John being adapted from the Beatles's John Lennon (in reality, Elton adapted the "John" in his name from Bluesology vocalist Long John Baldry). Elton begins writing music and tries to find success with Dick James' record label DJM Records under the management of Ray Williams. Williams introduces Elton to lyricist Bernie Taupin and they quickly form a friendship (Border Song) and they move into a flat together to work on their songs. When Elton admits that he is homosexual, he ends his romantic relationship with their landlady and he and Bernie are evicted from their flat.
