Sir Elton John celebrates 75th birthday

British pop superstar Elton John turned 75 on Friday but vowed to keep making music, even as he tours the world for the final time.

The flamboyant former Reg Dwight has become a stalwart of the music scene since the 1970s, with a string of hits including “Crocodile Rock”, “Candle in the Wind” and “Rocketman”.

He has also fronted a high-profile campaign for research against HIV/Aids, raising millions of pounds for charities.

The singer-songwriter, who became “Sir Elton” in 1998 when he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II, said he was not usually nostalgic but described the three-quarter century as a “milestone”.

“I´ll definitely find time today to take stock and thank my lucky stars for my wonderful family, friends, and career,” he added.
