All you “Tiny Dancer,” “Rocket Man” and “Levon” enthusiasts: Elton John has a new medium for you. The New York Times has reported Elton John has signed a book deal. Titled Love is the Cure: Ending the Global AIDS Epidemic, the book will cover John’s personal accounts of the AIDS crisis.
The book is to be released in July, published by publisher Little, Brown & Company.
As a well-known activist and founder of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, it seems appropriate that John share with the public his own experiences and realities of the epidemic that plagued his generation. We look forward to the wisdom, words and honesty John will surely bring to the pages—just as he has always done in the music he has created for decades.
