In his first and only official autobiography, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life. ‘Me’ is the the joyously funny, honest and moving story of the most enduringly successful singer/songwriter of all time.
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 over 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.
