Tin Pan Alley: The Rise Of Elton John

$14.10 USD

Tin Pan Alley: The Rise of Elton John takes readers on an epic journey through the music of the 60s and 70s via the early career of Elton John. It explores the close knit community that was the music business in the UK, the changes within Tin Pan Alley and the emergence of Elton John through the eyes of those who not only watched Elton's rising star from the wings, but also knew him out of the spotlight. With first-time access to many of Elton's bandmates, producers and managers, the book recounts Elton's rise and details the never told before circumstances that led to Elton's early years at DJM with the likes of Caleb Quayle and what it was like to work inside the DJM studios. Although no book on Elton John can ever overlook how Elton hooked up with Bernie Taupin, it has never been told as it is here, through the words of Elton's first songwriting partner, Kirk Duncan and Ray Williams, Elton's first Manager. It also describes the recording sessions of such iconic albums as Tumbleweed Connection, Madman
