Elton John: Ten Days That Rocked is a new documentary which premieres on Reelz TV on Sunday, June 9. It can be seen at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m PT.
Although known for being knighted and selling millions of records, the songwriter also battled drug addiction, among other problems. This two hour programme lifts the lid on one of the most iconic performers of all time with a look at the most powerful moments that molded his career and identity.
Highlighting each moment are Elton's own words from his writings and interviews as he reflects on each major milestone that altered the trajectory of his life. And helping tell his story are candid interviews with friends, colleagues and biographers. They include former band members Caleb Quaye and Kenny Passarelli; ex-fiancée Linda Hannon; biographer Keith Hayward; erstwhile manager Ray Williams; and producer Pete Bellotte.
