Summary
"ELTON JOHN is the most enduringly successful singer-songwriter of all time. His life is extraordinary, his seven decades (so far) packed with incredible highs and lows. Now he shares his story -- every hilarious, heartbreaking moment. He reveals the truth about his childhood growing up in the London suburb of Pinner and his difficult relationship with his parents. Christened Reginald Dwight, he was a shy boy with unlikely dreams of pop stardom. By the age of twenty-three, he was performing his first gig in America, facing an astonished audience in high bright yellow dungarees, a starspangled T-shirt, and boots with wings. Elton John had arrived and the music world would never be the same again. Me is full of drama, from the early rejection of Elton's work with songwriting partner Bernie Taupin to spinning out of control as a charttopping superstar; from friendships with John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, and George Michael to disco dancing with the Queen; from suicide attempts to a secret drug addiction that would grip him for over a decade. Elton also writes powerfully about getting clean and setting up his AIDS foundation. He describes finding true love with David Furnish, holidaying with Versace, and singing at Princess Diana's funeral. And he pinpoints the moment he realizes that he wants to be a father and his life changes once again."--
