Just finished listening on my ride home today. It was really good! I am always amazed at the moments that make a person who they become, especially in the world of stars. I know some people’s personalities allow them to make the most out of every opportunity; to see the future unfold ahead of them; to endure whatever they need to in order to become —-, fill in the blank. I am not one of those people and I enjoy living in awe when I hear their stories.

As he finishes this crazy story of the outrageous, over-the-top, fantastical life he’s lived, he states that there is no point in asking the “what-if’s “ of his past, but only should we ask “what’s next”. Great advice for all I think.

Long live Elton ☺️

Follows the standard celebrity memoir pattern: humble beginnings, overnight fame, drugs/sex/excess, rehab, equilibrium found in later years. A fair amount of dishing about other big names, but he never gets too catty about it, and the book is well-written and interesting.

Me, the autobiography of Elton John, certainly is a ride. The book follows, mainly chronologically, the most important events in the English singer/songwriter's life. It is an interesting life he's led, travelling the world doing concerts, meeting the richest and most famous, discovering his sexuality, lauding the sport of football (soccer), and out of his mind on drugs and booze. In fact, so much of his life was bound up with substances legal and illegal, that the book at times seems almost hallucinatory.

Elton John/Reginald Dwight was born into the lower middle class, suffered a terribly abusive childhood, and escaped into the world of music as soon as he was decently able. Always gifted with music, he sang, played piano, and met the right people at the right time. There is no doubt that Elton worked hard for his fame. He was rarely idle, a workaholic of the entertainment industry, always in awe of the famous people he met, always staggered that a lad from Pinner (in north London) could really be living as lavishly and as remarkably as he was.

The book is amusing, self-deprecating, and very honest. He makes no secret of the lower part of his life, when drugs ruled his world, nor does he hide the fact that he is tempermental, spoiled, and self-centred. I think what makes him remarkable is that he is not blind to his faults or the consequences of them.

What the book needed is a cast of characters. There are so many people populating the pages that unless you're a die-hard Elton fan, it's easy to lose track. I also think the book could have done with more editing. Sometimes whole paragraphs seem obscure because the writing rambles, which is charming in many ways, but is also challenging to follow. Sometimes I just couldn't figure out what was happening.

I definitely recommend the book, for anyone who is interested in Elton John or the world of pop music. It was an interesting story, a wild life, but the whole needed more polish and an editor's eye to make it truly satisfying.
