FactWrote the song Tiny Dancer, after his wife Maxine Feiberlman, in 1971.

Bernie Taupin is an English lyricist, poet, and singer, best known for his long-term collaboration with Elton John, writing the lyrics for many of John’s most popular songs.

Born in 1950 in the town of Sleaford in Lincolnshire, Taupin was the youngest of three children. His father was a farmer and his mother was a homemaker. Taupin’s early education came from a local primary school and he later attended a secondary modern school.

It was during his time at secondary school that Taupin began to develop his interest in music and poetry. He started to write his own songs and poems, and also began to perform in local clubs and pubs.

In 1967, Taupin met Elton John for the first time when John’s manager sent him some of Taupin’s lyrics to review. John was impressed with Taupin’s work and the two began a long-term collaboration that has resulted in some of the most popular songs of the past 50 years.

Some of the best-known songs that Taupin and John have written together include “Rocket Man”, “Tiny Dancer”, “Levon”, and “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road”. Taupin has also collaborated with other artists, including Alice Cooper, Bonnie Raitt, and Rod Stewart.

Taupin’s lyrics are known for their poetic imagery and often deal with themes of love, loss, and nostalgia. He has been nominated for several Grammy Awards and won an Academy Award for his work on the song “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” from the 1994 film The Lion King.

Bernie Taupin’s net worth is estimated to be $60 million. He has been married three times and has four children.
