Elton John’s long-awaited memoir coming in October


ABC/Randy HolmesWe knew that Elton John‘s autobiography would be coming out sometime this year, but now we know exactly when: October 15.

Described as “the first and only official autobiography of a much-loved global icon,” the book will detail what Elton calls his “crazy life.”

“I have grown up in a period of extraordinary change in our world — and have had the joyful honor of rubbing shoulders and working with so many of the people at the heart of these changes,” he says in a statement. “My life has been one helluva roller coaster ride and it’s still lumbering on. I hope readers will enjoy the ride too.”

You can now pre-order the book, which is priced at $33, at EltonJohn.com and at other retailers.  The title and the cover are yet to be revealed.

Of course, if you don’t like to read, you can just go see Rocketman, the theatrical movie about Elton’s life, when it lands in theaters this May.  However, the film has been described as a “musical fantasy,” so it’s not clear exactly how much of it will be fact-based and how much of it will be imagination.
