It’s double Elton to finish off Today in Music History. It was 2005, Elton John became one of the first Brits to take advantage of his country’s new Civil Partnership Act. The 58-year-old musician and his longtime friend, 43-year-old filmmaker David Furnish, tied the knot in a civil ceremony at the Guild Hall in Windsor. 9 years later, to the day, they were married and their two sons were ring bearers.
