What can we expect?

According to Elton John's official website: "Me is the joyously funny, honest and moving story of the most enduringly successful singer/songwriter of all time."

"In Me, Elton also writes powerfully about getting clean and changing his life, about finding love with David Furnish and becoming a father. In a voice that is warm, humble and open, this is Elton on his music and his relationships, his passions and his mistakes. This is a story that will stay with you, by a living legend."

Recently more excerpts of the memoir have been shared, revealing how Elton John was 24 hours away from death when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

He also revealed - in an extract which has been shared by The Daily Mail, how his cocaine addiction led him to hijack a Rolling Stones gig and punch his manager.

"My appetite for the stuff was unbelievable - enough to attract comment in the circles I was moving in," he writes.

"Given that I was a rock star spending a lot of time in Seventies LA, this was a not inconsiderable feat."
