Inhaltsangabe

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. The result is Me - the joyously funny, honest and moving story of the most enduringly successful singer/songwriter of all time.

Read by actor and star of Rocketman, Taron Egerton, with an introduction and epilogue read by Elton John.

Christened Reginald Dwight, he was a shy boy with Buddy Holly glasses who grew up in the London suburb of Pinner and dreamed of becoming a pop star. By the age of 23, he was performing his first gig in America, facing an astonished audience in his bright yellow dungarees, a star-spangled T-shirt and boots with wings. Elton John had arrived and the music world would never be the same again.

His life has been full of drama, from the early rejection of his work with songwriting partner Bernie Taupin to spinning out of control as a chart-topping superstar; from half-heartedly trying to drown himself in his LA swimming pool to disco-dancing with the queen; from friendships with John Lennon, Freddie Mercury and George Michael to setting up his AIDS Foundation. All the while, Elton was hiding a drug addiction that would grip him for more than a decade.

In Me Elton also 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, humble and open, this is Elton on his music and his relationships, his passions and his mistakes. This is a story that will stay with you, by a living legend.

Unbedingt empfehlenswert

Toll gelesen und geschauspielert! Ein irres Leben in einer bewegten Ära, die hier biografisch noch einmal lebendig wird. Werde ich bestimmt noch ein zweites Mal hören. Taron Egerton ist brillant!

I am a new fan and love this book

I never knew that he had cancer, he should become a vegan, a raw model for his kids. Taron is amazing, as always, and emphasises the story immensely. He should speak more books.
