A few years ago, Uncut magazine ran a new series of specials under the A Life In Pictures aegis.
More recently, as Eltonjohnworld.com has revealed, they have chosen to revisit 'Life In Pictures' as a means of celebrating the extraordinary, colourful life and career of an artist who appears to have been tailor-made for such a striking visual accompaniment: none other than Sir Elton. The publication's online store has copies for sale, and the assortment contains both rare and familiar images.
Such is the case with two new books as well. In his candid, dramatic, and often risible new memoir called Me, Elton showcases photographs of himself with his nan; Rod Stewart; Stevie Wonder; John Lennon; Ray Cooper; Bernie Taupin; Graham Taylor; Tim Rice; Andy Warhol; Freddie Mercury; Aretha Franklin; Elizabeth Taylor; Leon Russell; Bryan Forbes; John Reid; and David Furnish, among others. There are also a couple of photos of Elton dressed as different characters: Donald Duck at his 1980 Central Park show and Ronald McDonald at Wham!'s farewell concert in 1986.
And next month, Terry O'Neill's latest release will be available.
