Description

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.

Read by actor and star of Rocketman, Taron Egerton, with an introduction and epilogue read by Elton John.

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 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 more than 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.

Amazing Story

I have so much more respect for Elton John after listening to his autobiography. What an incredible life and the way he tells his story is so honest. I wished it could have been read by Elton himself but after listening to the book I understand why it may have been very tough for him to do it. Tarron’s reading was brilliant and you can hear he enjoyed telling Elton’s story.

Simply fantastic

Nothing is hidden. It is a true reflection of his life. His mom sounds horrible. They are not trying so spread some profound message through this book. It a perfectly written biography and this is how all biographies should be!

Captain bloody Fantastic!

Brilliant book, narration is wonderful. An absolute necessity for anyone who has any interest in Elton or the music of the time. A frank account of his addiction and excesses, moving at times, it takes the listener on a epic journey as the captain, Elton rises to conquer the world from his humble beginnings in the suburb Pinner, along with Bernie, the kid from Lincolnshire. It’s clear he’s not forgotten his roots or the people who helped him along his way, or those who had such a musical influence and shaped his music. Can’t recommend it highly enough.

Hilarious recount of a fascinating life

Elton is funny and unafraid of telling his story warts & all. Taron’s narration was awesome and really enhanced an already hilarious book.

Delightful

Elton John is a wonderful writer - engaging, a talented eye for detail, and very, very funny. Taron Egerton is the perfect narrator. I listened to it every spare moment I had, and then listened again. Highly recommended

Thoroughly enjoyable

Thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely an unapologetic and honest insight into the life of a global superstar. He is honest and direct, and owns the good and bad of himself, loved it.

Fantastic

I was never a huge fan of Elton John growing up. Probably because he was from a different era than mine. But after seeing rocketman last year, he struggles and his life story really resonated with me. I am absolutely adored listening to his autobiography ‘ME’ and cannot recommend it enough. For fans of the artist or the movie Rocket Man or just fans of Autobiographies. Elton takes you on a journey that you will never forget.

A Fabulous Journey

If you liked "Rocketman", you'll love this autobiographical audio book that takes you through Elton John's life up to 2020. Taron Egerton is doing a great job as always. Sometimes it's hard to follow, since the story jumps decades back and forth regularly depending on the topic so you'll have to pay close attention while listening.

Toll gelesen und geschauspielert! Ein irres Leben in einer bewegten Ära, die hier biografisch noch einmal lebendig wird. Werde ich bestimmt noch ein zweites Mal hören. Taron Egerton ist brillant!

I am a new fan and love this book

I never knew that he had cancer, he should become a vegan, a raw model for his kids. Taron is amazing, as always, and emphasises the story immensely. He should speak more books.
