First at EJW: Publisher Shares Plans For a New Book About a Pop Icon

Written by Chief Editor.

Equinox plans to release a new book about Elton later this year.

 

The publishing company told this Web site's Cheryl Herman that the date is unknown, but the author is Dave Laing, whose previous Equinox title was Buddy Holly.
 
Elton John is expected to assess the former Reg Dwight's evolution from journeyman pianist and songwriter to flamboyant showman and prolific composer; include his partnerships with lyricists like Bernie Taupin, Tom Robinson and Tim Rice, and examine the nature of 'celebrity.'

Dave is a London-based writer, editor and lecturer. He is Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Liverpool and Senior Research Associate at the University of East Anglia.
