Pub. Date:

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 #49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time. Yet no book published in the U.S. has so successfully captured the passion and complexity of Elton John’s life, much less his music. His stylistic versatility, combined with his flamboyant stage shows and memorable costumes, make him an unlikely combination of John Lennon, Noel Coward, Barry Manilow and Liberace. In a marketplace that regularly disposes of its pop icons, Elton John has been a musical force for decades, bringing his unique talents to venues as diverse as Broadway and Las Vegas. In The Bitch Is Back, Mark Bego brings this music legend to life.
