Me by Elton John is an awesome memoir. As you read it, you feel as if you are just sitting around and chatting with Elton. So personable. So chatty. So relatable. He dishes the dirt, and does not hold back on any subject. He acknowledges flaws, issues, ridiculous excesses, and is not overly apologetic. He is what he is, he did what he did, and it's all there in black and white.
And you'll love him and this book. Fortunately the man lived to tell his tale and even he can say how crazy he was and now how blessed he is now with a husband, kids, his charities, his friends, and his music.
Rough childhood, nerdy insecurities, ridiculous talent, and solid friendships. Despite a respite due to his drug problems, he and Bernie Taupin are soul mates and talents extreme and fortunately past the addiction issues.
Me takes you on an intimate journey with a living legend. He is still standing, and we are still applauding Sir Elton John.
