A true super-showman, Elton John has been called "the Liberace of Rock and Roll." Known almost as much for his outrageous stage costumes and sets as he is for his bluesy style on the piano, Elton John was the king of pop music in the mid-1970s, with such Number 1 hits as Philadelphia Freedom, Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, and Don't Go Breaking My Heart. Though his songs no longer monopolize the radio airwaves as the did before his breakup with sngwriter Bernie Taupin, Elton John continues to release albums, singles, and videos and to tour, often playing sellout crowds. His stage performances remain hugely entertaining, and his talent as a pianist and his gift for melody have ensured him a place in the hearts of fans who enjoy his unique sound.
Elton John contains over 90 photographs of the star in concert, behind the scenes, and in private. Featuring a discography and a comprehensive text, this book will delight Elton John fans who remember the glory days and those who are rediscovering his talents, or are discovering them for the first time.
