Elton John lived here
This is the childhood home where Elton John wrote early hits.
Location: 3a Frome Court, Pinner Road, Pinner, Middlesex,
Description: Flat 3a here is where music legend Elton John (formerly Reginald Dwight) lived with his mother and stepfather (Fred Fairebrother) from the age of 15 in 1962 until his initial success as Elton John in 1971.
It's supposed that he wrote classic Elton ballad Your Song here as well as Skyline Pigeon and Tiny Dancer. Lyricist Bernie Taupin visited often and their relationship that spawned so many great songs began here.
