Yo. Elton John / Me: Elton John. Official Autobiography

Hardback Publication Date: 21/01/2020

  $42.50
La primera y única autobiografía de Elton John.

Un retrato sincero, alegre y profundo del compositor y cantante con la más larga y exitosa trayectoria musical de la historia.

Reginald Dwight, su verdadero nombre, fue un chico tímido con gafas a lo Buddy Holly que creció en Pinner, un pequeño municipio a las afueras de Londres, y soñaba en convertirse en una estrella del pop. Con solo veintitrés años dio su primer concierto en Estados Unidos, ante un público sorprendido por su insólito aspecto: un mono amarillo chillón, una camiseta estampada de estrellas y un par de botas aladas. Elton John había llegado y el mundo de la música jamás volvería a ser el mismo.

Su vida está repleta de momentos dramáticos, desde el rechazo que sufrieron sus primeros trabajos con su colaborador y letrista Bernie Taupin hasta la locura que le envolvió cuando era una superestrella que dominaba las listas de ventas, pasando por su flirteo con el suicidio en la piscina de su residencia en Los Ángeles, por la noche en que bailó con la reina de Inglaterra en el castillo de Windsor, por su amistad con John Lennon, Freddie Mercury y George Michael, o por su decisión de montar una fundación contra el sida. Mientras tanto, Elton escondía una adicción que lo atrapó durante más de una década.

En Yo, Elton también escribe de manera inspiradora sobre su proceso de rehabilitación y cómo cambió de vida, sobre cómo encontró el amor en los brazos de David Furnish y se convirtió en padre. Su voz en este libro es cálida, modesta y franca, y nos habla de su música y de las personas que entraron en su vida, de sus pasiones y de sus errores. Esta historia permanecerá contigo para siempre, de la mano de una leyenda viva.

«Lo mejor del rock and roll es que alguien como yo puede convertirse en una estrella.»

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In his first and only official autobiography, music icon Elton John reveals the truth about his extraordinary life, from his rollercoaster lifestyle as shown in the film Rocketman, to becoming a living legend.

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 twenty-three 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 song-writing 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 Princess Diana and Queen Elizabeth; from friendships with John Lennon, Freddie Mercury, and George Michael to setting up his AIDS Foundation to conquering Broadway with Aida, The Lion King, and Billy Elliot the Musical. All the while Elton was hiding a drug addiction that would grip him for over 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.
