Audio Book Summary

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.
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 twenty-three, 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 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. 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.

    He rambles a lot, he's telling you a story and then goes off to another. But in all hoensty those where the best parts. You can see its Elton John who wrote it, how he thinks and I loved it. It's also amazing to hear about all these celebrities like John Lennon and Freddie Mercury through Elton's perspective. And as for the narrator, Taron Egerton is absolutely amazing, one can hear how much he loves Elton by his enthusiasm. And let's not forget how brilliant he is at accent, his scouse and Italian accents are worth the whole book.

    Brilliant!! You get a real look into how he felt and how he feels now looking back on moments in his life. A real riveting listen that's hard to turn off. Adore him even more now then what I did before (and yes I was/am a genuine fan).
