"Reg Strikes Back", released in 1988, is the twenty-first official album release for Elton John. It was his self-proclaimed comeback album, and his own way of fighting back against bad press. The "Reg" in "Reg Strikes Back" refers to John's birth name, Reginald Kenneth Dwight. In the US the album was certified Gold in August 1988 by the RIAA. This was the last album that bassist Dee Murray (albeit without bass) appeared on prior to his death in 1992. The tracks "I Don't Wanna Go On with You Like That" and "A Word in Spanish" peaked at #2 and #19 on the Billboard Hot 100, respectively.
