In , John embarked on a three-year farewell tour. His parents married in ,  when the family moved to a nearby semi-detached house.
When John began to consider a career in music seriously, his father, who served as a flight lieutenant in the Royal Air Force , tried to steer him toward a more conventional career, such as banking.
I didn't ever want to be anything else. I'm more of a Little Richard stylist than a Jerry Lee Lewis, I think. Jerry Lee is a very intricate piano player and very skillful, but Little Richard is more of a pounder.
John started playing his grandmother's piano as a young boy,  and within a year his mother heard him picking out Waldteufel 's "The Skater's Waltz " by ear.
He showed musical aptitude at school, including the ability to compose melodies and gained some notoriety by playing like Jerry Lee Lewis at school functions.
At age 11, he won a junior scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music. According to one of his instructors, John promptly played back, like a "gramophone record", a four-page piece by George Frideric Handel after hearing it for the first time.
John's mother, though strict with her son, was more vivacious than her husband, and something of a free spirit. With Stanley Dwight uninterested in his son and often absent, John was raised primarily by his mother and maternal grandmother.
When his father was home, the Dwights had vehement arguments that greatly distressed John. His mother then married a local painter, Fred Farebrother, a caring and supportive stepfather whom John affectionately called "Derf" "Fred" backwards.

In , John and some friends formed a band called Bluesology. By day, he ran errands for a music publishing company; he divided his nights between solo gigs at a London hotel bar and working with Bluesology.
In , the band became Long John Baldry 's supporting band and played 16 times at the Marquee Club. Six months later, John began going by the name Elton John in homage to two members of Bluesology: saxophonist Elton Dean and vocalist Long John Baldry.

Later that year, in Lennon's last major live performance, the pair performed these two number-one hits, along with the Beatles' " I Saw Her Standing There ", at Madison Square Garden in New York.
Lennon made the rare stage appearance with John and his band to keep the promise he had made that he would appear on stage with him if "Whatever Gets You Thru The Night" became a US number one single.
Pete Townshend of the Who asked John to play the "Local Lad" in the film adaptation of the rock opera Tommy , and to perform the song " Pinball Wizard ".
