CHARGE: To chronicle the life of Elton John
FACTS: Elton John has lived a life that has run the gamut of poor to rich, drunk to sober, and everywhere in between. Stories of debauchery, drug use, and family dysfunction were very difficult to read. I had forgotten that Elton John had written the soundtrack for the Lion King. The stories behind how songs were written, recorded, and promoted were very interesting. The book is written in rather simplistic language, but is an interesting look behind the scenes of the life of a rock legend. Much of the depravity was unsettling.
VERDICT: Guilty, as charged.
