Elton John - The Autobiography


Forget everything you have ever read about Elton John, you can now hear it from the horse’s mouth. And this isn’t a man who is shy about talking about his life - highs and lows.

I’m not prone to being a nostalgic person. I’m often accused of only looking forward to my next gig or creative project. It’s come as quite a surprise how cathartic I am finding the process of writing my memoirs. As I look back, I realize what a crazy life I have had the extreme privilege of living.
— Sir Elton John

Although the title and cover are still to be revealed, the autobiography is coming in October 2019, the first and only official autobiography of a much-loved global icon.

I have grown up in a period of extraordinary change in our world – and have had the joyful honor of rubbing shoulders and working with so many of the people at the heart of these changes. My life has been one helluva roller coaster ride and it’s still lumbering on. I hope readers will enjoy the ride too.
— Sir Elton John

During the auction at this year's Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party, actor Taron Egerton, the star of the upcoming motion picture Rocketman, was welcomed to the stage. Following a short preview of the trailer and a round of bidding on a trip to the London premiere of the film, the audience was taken by surprise when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of Tiny Dancer and Elton volunteered from the audience to accompany him on the piano!

The 27th annual EJAF Academy Awards Viewing Party hosted by Sir Elton John and David Furnish raised $6.5 million for the global effort to end AIDS.

Rocketman opens in theatres on May 31, 2019.
