Abstract:

"Elton John's parents knew early on he was a music prodigy--they just had no idea that their classically-trained son, Reggie Dwight, would transform from a shy, introverted schoolboy to one of the world's most extraordinary and outrageous pop-rock superstars in the world. Elton John has sold over 200 million records and has had more than 56 top-40 singles. He has won five Grammys, and Academy award, a Golden Globe, and a Tony, Rolling Stone magazine ranks Elton #49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. In a marketplace that regularly disposes of its pop icons, Elton John has been a musical force for decades, bringing his incomparable genius to venues as diverse as Broadway and Las Vegas. There is no one quite like Sir Elton John, and this is his story"--Cover, p. 2.
