Author and Elton John fan, Keith Hayward, seamlessly weaves these two worlds together by interviewing those that were there. Band mates in Bluesology and the Elton John Band, Tony Taupin (brother of Bernie), manager Ray Williams, lyricists Gary Osborne and Bill Martin, songwriter Tony Hatch, music publicist Tony King and many more share their thoughts and memories.
With never-before-seen photos, Tin Pan Alley: The Rise of Elton John is the first book to focus solely on the artist's formative years. It is a must not only for Sir Elton's army of fans but for anyone with an interest in music history.
Music business journalist, Nigel Hunter, who worked in the Alley, provides a funny and touching preface and epilogue. The jacket has been specially designed by David Larkham, who was responsible for producing many of Sir Elton's early album covers.
