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.”
