I’m not a die hard Elton fan but Ive heard his music since I was 9 years old.. I was interested in his story because he’s been around for so long and I was interested in what he had learnt in life especially coming out of that kind of industry... I wasn’t disappointed, I feel like he was honest in baring his heart and sharing his journey the way he did.. he’s had an amazing life and appears to be humble and thankful for what that life has benefited him.. great read and well done to Elton
Wonderful insights into a brilliant yet very human man. Elton’s sense of humour shone through, his honesty - brave, his humility - admirable, his flaws - relatable, his pain - heartbreaking, his passion - inspiring. For all that I loved & learned, I was left wanting to know even more about this remarkable, talented, international treasure who I’m proud to be a fan of.
There has been a lot documented about Elton and some of it is also in this book and that is understandable. Elton is honest and personal in the book, one of many special moments he shared that touched me was, when he cried listening to LEON RUSSELL'S "Back to the Island" brought so many memories...
There are passages in this book so funny I was laughing out loud. It’s also honest about Elton’s less attractive aspects. Elton comes across as a generous, compassionate and loyal person who has developed insight into himself and his extra-ordinary good fortune. Superbly ghosted by Alex Petridis.
