Elton John's memoir,Me, which was published last October, is out in paperback tomorrow (Tuesday) in England. It will be available in the U.S.on October 27th.
He's updated it with a new chapter, writing about what has transpired between the hardcover and this new edition.
Among the topics are his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, the success of his film, Rocketman, and his falling out with Rod Stewart, which was caused by Rod saying Elton is doing his farewell tour for the money, and his negative criticism of Rocketman.
A source close to Elton tells The Sun, "Rod’s continued barbed and personal criticism of his recent successes has crossed a line beyond their usual friendly rivalry."
"Elton cherishes his friendship with Rod and hasn’t wanted to go public. He made attempts to contact Rod directly to clear the air, but when his requests to speak were either knocked back or went unanswered, Elton felt compelled to set the record straight with this new chapter in his autobiography."
Elton voiced the new chapter for the audiobook, the rest of which was voiced by actor Taron Egerton, who played Elton in Rocketman.
Elton has posted two more videosof him recording the new chapter, including one in which he cannot say the word "preposterousness."
