Captain Fantastic : Elton John's stellar trip through the '70s
Doyle, Tom, 1967-2017
Articles
In August 1970 Elton John achieved overnight fame after a rousing performance at the Troubadour in Los Angeles; over the next five years he was unstoppable, scoring seven consecutive number one albums and 16 top ten singles in America. But behind his outré image and comedy glasses lay a desperately shy individual, conflicted about his success, his sexuality and his narcotic indulgences. 'Captain Fantastic' is an intimate look at the rise, fall and rise again of John's fame-and-drug fuelled decade, with a final section bringing his life up to the present.
