Back in October, the singer suffered another loss as he mourned the loss of rock and roll legend Jerry Lee Lewis.

Posting a smiling photo of himself with Jerry Lee, Elton wrote: "Without Jerry Lee Lewis, I wouldn't have become who I am today. He was groundbreaking and exciting, and he pulverized the piano. A brilliant singer too."
