    Here's the straight (and not-so-straight) scoop that every Elton John fan has been waiting for - from the addictions, toupees, affairs, and scandals to the triumphant later years. Elton John has sold over 200 million records and has more than 56 Top 40 singles. He has won five Grammy awards, an Academy Award, a Golden Globe, and a Tony. Rolling Stone ranks him number 49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Yet no book published in the US has so successfully captured the passion and complexity of Elton John's life, much less his music.
