image for Elton John shares nightmares with QB magazine
Elton depicts nightmares in art and photography.

Elton John spoke out in an interview with QB magazine for the first time to discuss the nightmares he experienced as a child which molded his life and made him the person he is today.

At the age of 12 he was diagnosed with Sleep Paralysis that recreates his nightmares in realistic clarity, and it's scary. The majority of people with the disorder show a superior talent for music and art.

Elton spends his days like the rest of us, but his nights are very different. In his nightmares, he has a fear of women, high places, thunder storms, and jail.

During a medical exam, he was shown a picture of a woman's hairless leg at which time he ran behind the exam table to hide in a safe place.

His close friends suggested he document his nightmares in art and music.

He did just that, by writing lyrics about a pianist who lives in his nightmares named Levon who was falsely accused. In his dreams fat women spat on Levon while Jesus left him behind, by departing to Venus.

Elton recalls waking up singing "And he shall be Levon, And he shall be a good man."

This project has gifted me a sense of who I am," he said. "It gave me the strength to persevere in life, to create art and speak to people. I don't know where I would be without it."
