One of music's true global superstars and most admired figures, Elton John has sold over an estimated 200 million albums worldwide to date, but is loved as much for his outrageous personality and witty outspokenness as for his music. Drawing on many first-hand interviews with his associates and musical collaborators, alongside exhaustive secondary research, this page-turning story of high drama and prodigious, enduring talent provides a fascinating and revealing portrait of the Queen Mum of Pop, and offers a new perspective on this extraordinary man.
