New Elton John documentary slated for fall
You’ve been losing trivia nights ever since Pop-Up Video and Behind the Music went off the air, haven’t you?

Someone Like Me, a new documentary about the knighted rocker, is chock full of everything they warned us about during high school assemblies — drug addictions, depression and tantrums. A lesser man would have caved years ago.
But after 60 years and over 200 million in album sales, John just keeps on providing ripe tabloid and interview material. Look for the film—and his cah-razy specs—come September 18.
