'A definitive insight into the life of the balding, bespectacled pub pianist who conquered the world.' TimesAt the top for over three decades, Elton's career began as Reg Dwight pounding the piano in a Pinner pub, and perhaps reached its apotheosis with `Goodbye England's Rose' at the funeral of his close friend, Diana, Princess of Wales. In between we've seen it all: the glittering costumes, the indestructible classics, the sky-high boots, the draining addictions, the failed marriage, the coming out. It's an epic, which requires the pen of a master storyteller to do it justice.Philip Norman's Elton was first published by Hutchinson in 1991 (later Arrow pb), to critical acclaim. Since then, there are many chapters of this extraordinary life - whose protagonist is part Liberace, part The Who, yet beloved by the Queen Mother - which have yet to be chronicled. In trade paperback, the updated Sir Elton is now back in print, and of it Elton has said, `He's got me spot on'!
