In his first and only official autobiography, published globally on October 15, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life. Following on from the hugely successful and critically acclaimed epic musical fantasy 'Rocketman' comes 'Me' - the joyously funny, honest and moving story of one of the world's most irrepressible and flamboyant musical geniuses.
Written by Elton with writer and music critic Alexis Petridis, it is a no holds barred account of Elton's life and work as the most enduringly successful singer songwriter of all time. It is filled with sex, drugs and rock and roll, with an incredible supporting cast, unimaginable highs and equally unimaginable lows – but it is also a story about the transformative power of music, social change over the last 60 years, and redemption. It has been called the greatest saga in rock history.
In 'Me' Elton writes powerfully about getting clean and changing his life, about finding love with David Furnish and becoming a father. In a voice that is warm, frank and irreverent, this is Elton revealing all for the very first time, from his music and his relationships, to his passions and his mistakes. This is a memoir that will stay with you, and a story of a living legend like no other.
