Sir Elton John and his songwriting partner will be honoured by the Hall of Fame

Sir Elton John and his longtime songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin, will be presented with a special honour at this year's Songwriters Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Elton and Bernie, who teamed up on most of the singer's best-known hits, will receive the Johnny Mercer Award during the ceremony in New York on June 13.

Elton and Bernie have already been inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1992, but have now been chosen to receive the added honour, because their body of work upholds the standards set by Johnny Mercer, a co-founder of Capitol Records.

The duo worked together on some of rock 'n' roll's most well-known songs, including Rocket Man, Crocodile Rock, and Candle in the Wind.

This year's inductees into the Hall of Fame include Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith; Mick Jones and Lou Gramm of Foreigner; Holly Knight; JD Souther; and Tony Hatch.

If it wasn't for Bernie Taupin, that fat poof Reg Dwight would still be a bald nobody.

Bernie Taupin, the man who put 'Elton John' on the Yellow Brick Road, and fed him classic lyrics.
