Do you know Elton John commited suicide but he loved life so much that he didn’t want to kill himself. In 1975, Elton John tried to commit suicide by sticking his head in an oven with the gas on low and windows open. He was found and stopped by his best friend Bernie Taupin. ” What’s more, he was resting his head on a pillow inside the oven”, says Bernie. As another sucide attemp, his friend Caleb Quaye says, “He threw himself into the water, then struggled to come to the surface.” Caleb later remembers the arrival of an emergency medical team to pump the pianist’s stomach.
