British singer, composer and pianist Elton John refuses to sell the rights to his songs.

The artiste, who was nicknamed the Rocket Man after his hit single named the same came out, talks about how he passionately cares for his songs and wouldn’t want to give up control over a very important part of his life.

This decision sets Elton John apart from iconic artistes like Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen who, when presented with the opportunity, did sell the rights to their music. Elton John reportedly doesn’t need the money and plans to give up touring next July after completing over 300 shows.

John and his husband David Furnish have 2 sons and look forward to being able to spend more time with them.
