Sparking his sobriety

Later after his addiction was in full swing, Elton John met Ryan White which sparked his sobriety. "Ryan was the spark that helped me to recover from my addictions and start the AIDS foundation. Within six months (of White’s death) I became sober, and clean, and have been for 27 years.” He said in a Harvard University talk in 2017.
