Written by Chief Editor.

As previously reported, Elton's memoirs will be out in October.

It's being written by the star, along with music critic Alexis Petridis. It promises to be a no- holds- barred account of Elton's life and work as the most enduring singer songwriter of his generation. 

Anthony Forbes Watson, Pan Macmillan Managing Director, said "Elton's life transcends classification and his wildly readable, deeply human story will speak to anyone and everyone, everywhere. We look forward to working alongside our close colleagues at Holt to make Elton the biggest worldwide publishing event of 2019."

Jeremy Trevathan, ​Publisher, ​Macmillan ​​UK, added, "Elton John's memoir is a Holy Grail of book publishing. Publishers around the world have long contemplated the excitement and potential of such a wonderful project. When the material arrived we were overwhelmed by how authentic, open, charming and, yes, commercial it was. I'm more than proud that we will be working with Elton and David to bring​ ​out​ ​this fantastic book."
