Author: Andy Peebles
Published by St. Martin's Press
55 pages, softcover
By the time he had reached age thirty-three, Elton John had sold a phenominal twenty-one million albums, and to celebrate that fact, he gave an in-depth interview to Andy Peebles of BBC radio at his home in the English countryside.
This fascinating and fully illustrated book, and edited version of their conversation, traces the amazing career of one of rock and roll's most popular and creative superstars from his very early days up to the 80s. Elton John reflects on his long association with lyricist Bernie Taupin and other prominent rock musicians and reveals much about his personality - how he copes with his private life, the price of fame and money, and how he combines being chairman of a soccer club with his prolific musical career.
The Elton John Tapes is an intimate and candid look at the man and the musician that his millions of fans won't want to miss.
