Taron Egerton reads Elton John’s candid, funny and irreverent account of his extraordinary life.

Elton John tells his extraordinary life story with honesty, humour and irreverence. Here he charts his journey from the shy boy who grew up in Pinner to become one of the 20th century’s most iconic pop stars. His life is one marked by dramatic highs and lows. His phenomenal career, setting up his AIDS foundation, finding love and starting a family contrast with his battle with addiction and getting clean. It’s a roller coaster of story that captures the man behind one of music’s living legends. Taron Egerton reads.

Taron Egerton has recently played Elton John in the biopic, Rocketman. Other credits include The Kingsman and its sequel, Testament of Youth and Eddie the Eagle.
