For the next two years, they wrote material for several artists from Lulu to Roger Cook. They put their skills together and wrote Empty Sky, Elton’s debut solo album which was released in 1969.

After many successful years of performing worldwide, Elton John was awarded knighthood as recognition for his musical talents and great generosity towards humanity by Queen Elizabeth the II at Buckingham Palace in 1998.
