Bernie Taupin net worth: Bernard John "Bernie" Taupin is an English singer, songwriter, poet and lyricist who has a net worth of $70 million. Bernie Taupin gained his net worth by collaborating with Elton John on many successful songs and albums. Born in Lincolnshire, England, in 1950, Bernie Taupin left high school to work at a local newspaper, but didn't last long in the position. He soon spent his teenage years hitchhiking, hanging out with his friends and drinking. When Taupin was 17, he answered an ad placed in "New Musical Express" looking for fresh talent. Another soon-to-be famous musician answered the same ad: Sir Elton John. Since then, the duo have worked together on more than 30 records. Taupin has penned songs like "Tiny Dancer", "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me", "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues", "Rocket Man" and "Candle in the Wind". He later re-wrote "Candle in the Wind" as a tribute to Princess Diana following her death. The pair was featured on a 1991 documentary "Two Rooms" and five years later, opened their first Broadway production called "Lestat: The Musical". Taupin and John created five new songs for the 2011 animated film "Gnomeo and Juliet". Taupin has worked with other artists, writing "We Built This City" for Starship and "This Face" for Willie Nelson and Kid Rock. His song "A Love That Will Never Grow Old" won a Golden Globe after it was used in "Brokeback Mountain". He has three solo albums: "Taupin", "He Who Rides The Tiger" and "Tribe", and two albums with Farm Dogs: "Last Stand in Open Country" and "Immigrant Sons". He's the author of several books, including a collection of poetry called "The Devil at High Noon". Taupin has been married four times. He and his current wife, Heather Lynn Hodgins Kidd, have been married since 2004 and they have two children together. They live on a ranch outside of Los Angeles.
