A close friend of Elton’s who died of AIDS would have turned 70 next month.

Around the birthdate of Freddie Mercury during the first week of September, Mark Blake‘s A Kind of Magic is being published.

The author tells this Web site: ”Elton is mentioned in connection with their old manager John Reid. The book also mentions a present Mercury arranged to send to Elton after he had died.”

Mark, who has previously written biographies of Pink Floyd, the Who and Queen, adds:

”The Freddie book is very much a photo book with a much shorter text than those biographies.”
