Attempted suicide is certainly no laughing matter, but Elton John’s experience was recalled light-heartedly by the singer’s friend, Bernie Taupin, in an article published by

“Bernie walked in on Elton trying to commit suicide when he was about to marry a woman named Linda Woodrow. Elton had stuck his head in the oven. But Bernie couldn’t stop laughing. Elton had set the gas on low with all the windows open. What’s more, he was resting his head on a pillow.”

John’s hit single “Someone Saved My Life Tonight” was written about the incident.
