New Tin Pan Alley Book Out Soon

From Tin Pan Alley To The Yellow Brick Road is author Keith Hayward’s sequel to the critically acclaimed Tin Pan Alley: The Rise of Elton John.

 It continues Elton John’s story from the start of his solo career and his breakthrough with ‘Your Song’ to the end of the seventies. A time where Elton achieved unparalleled success, but at a price. Personal relationships and the physical exhaustion of being one of the most in demand performers in the world are documented alongside the sometimes ruthless business side of the music world.

With contributions from many people who played a big part in Elton’s success, including his manager John Reid, David Larkham(cover designer), Stuart Epps, Steve James, Kenny Passarelli, Roger Pope (whom the author managed) and Kiki Dee. This is a journey through the music business - from the mid sixties through to the end of seventies - as seen through Elton's career.
