Dressed in a flamboyant devil's outfit, Elton John enters an addiction rehabilitation session, and recounts his life in a flashback (The Bitch Is Back).
Young Elton (born Reginald Dwight) grows up in 1950s Britain, raised by his cold, unaffectionate mother, Sheila, and more loving grandmother Ivy. His father, Stanley, serves in the Royal Air Force and is mostly absent from home and his son’s life. Reginald is interested in music and piano and discovers his ability to “play by ear”—instantly replaying a piece perfectly after listening to it once. He hopes to perform for his father upon his return, but Stanley takes no interest in his son nor his talent (I Want Love).
