Elton John opens up

The World

At the age of 72, Elton John is enjoying a renaissance. This year alone, he’s been the subject of a hit film, played 88 concerts, and previewed a new Broadway musical based on the hit novel, “The Devil Wears Prada.” Now, he's lifting the curtain on his career and his private life in a new memoir simply titled, “Me.” The BBC's Mark Savage has the story.
