SCATTERSHOT Life, Music, Elton, and Me

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by John Lee, Bernie Taupin

Biography & Memoir • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

After Elton John's songwriting collaborator delivers an introductory note with appealing sincerity, John Lee narrates Bernie Taupin's story with boyish charm and beguiling enthusiasm. His sensitivity to Taupin's perspectives and the rhythms of his literary writing is palpable and quite beautiful to hear. Taupin is an uncommon pop music guy--self-aware and humble. His literary background gives depth to his observations about the music scene he's been part of for the past 50 years. What he shares about all the British and American music greats he knows reveals him to be a kind and discerning artist in the broadest sense. Lee's performance captures the 73-year-old author's finely tuned appreciation of life and art. He makes this autobiography a moving audiobook to hear. T.W.
