 Q:   Ask a Question about Bernie Taupin       
Bernie Taupin Bernie Taupin was born on 22nd May, 1950 in Lincolnshire, England, UK ) is an English lyricist, singer, songwriter and poet, most famous for his collaborations with Elton John.

Biography and Career

His father was employed as a stockman by a large farm estate, near the town of Market Rasen. Taupin and his younger brother Tony attended Catholic school in Sleaford, continuing there after the family was relocated to the nearby village of Rowston, where they lived in Rowston Manor, a significant step up after a home with no electricity.

The family attended Holy Rood Catholic Church in the town of Market Rasen, where Bernie and Tony served as altar boys. Bernie attended school at Market Rasen Secondary Modern. Unlike his older brother, he was not a diligent student, alt hough he showed an early flair for writing. At 15 he dropped out of school. He had worked at several part-time, dead-end jobs when, at the age of 17, he answered an advertisement that led to his collaboration with Elton John.

Taupin's mother and his maternal grandfather "Poppy" taught him an appreciation for nature and for literature (particular narrative poetry), both of which inform his early lyrics.

Thus began the famous and well-loved songwriting team of Elton John and Bernie Taupin. The pair have collaborated on more than 30 albums to date. The team took some time off from each other for a while between 1977 and 1979, while Taupin worked with other songwriters, and John worked with other lyricists, including Gary Osborne and Tom Robinson.

On 25 March 2007, Taupin made a surprise appearance at John's 60th birthday celebration at Madison Square Garden, briefly discussing their 40-year songwriting partnership. Of Taupin's importance to their careers, as recorded on the "Elton 60: Live at Madison Square Garden" DVD.

Taupin and John are currently working on their next studio album. It is expected to be due out sometime in 2010. They have also collaborated on five original songs for the upcoming Disney movie Gnomeo and Juliet, due out in 2010.
