Me Elton John
The life of Rocket Man
In his first official autobiography, music icon ELTON JOHN reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, which is also the subject of the smash-hit film Rocketman. 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.
