Music star Elton John has announced the first autobiography of his life will hit bookstores on 15 October.
Speaking from his favorite bookshop in London, John said a lot of authors had written about him.
‘I can’t wait for you to read it, because it’s the truth,’ John said sitting on a wooden staircase in the bookshop.
‘And so many books that have been written about me haven’t exactly been truthful.’
John concluded: ‘I can’t wait for you to see what I have to say about my life.’
My life has been one helluva roller coaster ride and I’m now ready to tell you my story, in my own words. My first and only official autobiography will be released October 2019.

Roller coaster ride
On social media John said his ‘life has been one helluva roller coaster ride’.
‘And I’m now ready to tell you my story, in my own words,’ he wrote.
His autobiography comes in the same that Rocketman, a biopic about his life starring Taron Egerton, will be released in cinemas around the world in May.
John is also currently touring for the final time on his Farewell Tour.
Elton John was born Reginald Dwight in England in 1947. He is one of the best-selling music artists of all time, selling more than 300 million albums worldwide.
He has used his public platform to raise money for HIV and AIDS charities and recently encouraged to know their status.
‘Everyone should understand the risks of HIV, and everyone who needs it should have the chance of dignified help and support. That can only happen if we know our status,’ he wrote in December.
‘Let’s make HIV testing normal and break the stigma that still surrounds the virus.’
