Description - Elton John: Captain Fantastic on the Yellow Brick Road by Gillian G. Gaar


A beautifully produced celebration of the iconic and beloved rock star, Elton John features live onstage and candid offstage photography, an entertaining history, and gatefold timeline.
Few rock artists continue to gather more and more adulation with age than Sir Elton Hercules John. In this re-release of Elton John at 75 (2022), veteran rock journalist Gillian Gaar provides a unique examination of Elton's life and career through the lens of 75 career accomplishments and life events-from his first steps as a solo artist to the breakthrough album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road to his flamboyant stage presence, and beyond.
Key studio albums are featured, of course, as are a curated selection of his earworm singles. But Gaar delves deeper to reveal the events that helped chart the course of Elton's career:
Key performances such as his breakthrough performance at LA's Troubadour, and the historic Soviet Union and Dodger Stadium concerts
Legendary collaborations with the likes of Dua LIpa, Billy Joel, and Kate Bush
His many film and television roles, including Tommy and The Muppet Show
Tireless work on behalf of AIDS research
Notable awards and honors, including knighthood
And of course his collaboration with longtime cowriter Bernie Taupin
Every page is illustrated with stunning photography, including gig posters, 7-inch picture sleeves, and more. This incredible package also includes a gatefold Elton John timeline.
The result is a fitting tribute to one of the most admired stars in rock.
