Summary: The rock memoir of the decade’ Daily Mail ‘The rock star’s gloriously entertaining and candid memoir is a gift to the reader’ Sunday Times In his first and only official autobiography, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, which is also the subject of the smash-hit film Rocketman.
This is Elton John’s only first hand autobiography, and it is astounding. Elton pulls no punches throughout, delving into accounts of depression and suicide attempts, drug addiction, break-ups and even his cancer diagnosis, but the book does not look to the audience for sympathy. It’s just Elton, straight up. His voice is warm and genial, but he makes clear that he is an imperfect person on so many levels, but that he has persevered regardless. An absolute must for any fan of Elton, or anyone who loves rock biographies.
