The Elton John Scrapbookhas received high praise from contemporaries and readers alike.
Says Mark Bego, author of 60 books on rock and roll and show business including Elton John, “M.A. Cassata has a long history of writing fascinating books about several of the pop world’s true icons. This book shows off all of her strong points, which draws upon her vast knowledge about Elton, and about the music business in general. Music fans love Cassata for her adherence to detail, and with Elton John as a subject she truly has a true field day! From fascinating facts about Elton’s vast catalog of music to his addictions, his outrageous fashion sense, his personal life and a complete discography, this book has it all!”
Robert Rosen, author of Nowhere Man: The Final Days of John Lennon, says, “The energy, the melody, and the poetry of Elton John and Bernie Taupin −a songwriting team equal to John Lennon and Paul McCartney − demanded my attention from the moment, in 1971, that I first heard ‘Your Song’ pouring from my stereo speakers. I’ve been paying attention ever since, and that’s why I find M.A. Cassata’s Elton John Scrapbooka delight. This revised and updated tribute −long awaited by many −contains a wealth of information and rarely seen photos that paint an intimate and unforgettable portrait of one of our most compelling performers. Cassata, a veteran rock journalist who has interviewed such icons as Bob Dylan, Patti Smith, McCartney and Elton himself, has put together a book that his fans will treasure.”
