Elton John heads to book signing for new memoir with supportive husband David Furnish

He’s been on a promotional trail for his sensational new autobiography, which was released last month.

And Elton John proved there’s no rest for the wicked as he headed to Waterstone’s Piccadilly for a book signing for his new memoir, Me, with husband David Furnish in London on Wednesday afternoon.

The musician, 72, mixed style with comfort by teaming a pair of metallic joggers with a sharp blazer as his supportive partner, 57, followed his lead to the retailer’s flagship shop.

Singer Elton’s navy tuxedo jacket was dressed down with a casual white T-shirt, which coordinated with the panels along the sides of the bottoms.

Cutting a sporty figure, the Circle of Life composer donned Gucci trainers, and rounded off his appearance with his signature kooky pink-tinted shades.

David looked equally stylish as he paired dark circular-framed sunglasses with a designer leather jacket.

Me – released last month – details his impressive journey to stardom, as well as his dependency struggles and high-profile friendships. 

In an excerpt from the book, Elton revealed David ended up in rehab with a serious alcohol problem because he could not cope with his partner’s worldwide fame.

The producer took to drink after struggling to live in the public eye and suffering loneliness as the musician was away on tour.

Realising the extent of his drink problem, former advertising executive David checked into a clinic in Malibu, California.

In his racy new autobiography, award-winning belter Elton writes: ‘I always thought David had slipped into Elton John World with remarkable ease and confidence, but it turned out that a lot of things I was completely used to living with, that I just saw as a fact of life, made him completely anxious.

‘He didn’t like being photographed all the time, or being under press scrutiny, or public speaking at [Elton John] AIDS Foundation events.’

The media personality – who entered into a civil partnership with David in 2005 and married him in 2014 when gay marriage became legal – said his partner’s drink demons became apparent when he found empty wine bottles scattered throughout the homes they shared around the world.

On one occasion, Elton discovered David passed out in front of his computer. Four years after the couple adopted their sons Elijah and Zachary, the boozing had become so severe that the singer feared they would split up.

‘It all came to a head in Los Angeles in 2014, two days before I was due to start a US tour… David was feeling low and wanted me to stay the extra night with him. I said no. We had a huge row, I went anyway,’ he writes.

‘The next morning, David called and we had a row that made the previous day’s row look like a light-hearted disagreement over what to have for lunch.

‘The kind of argument where you come off the phone teary and reeling, where things are said that make you wonder whether the next time you communicate it’ll be through lawyers.

‘In fact, the next time I heard from David, he had checked himself into a rehab clinic in Malibu. I was pleased he was getting treatment.’

When David left rehab, Elton – who has endured his own well-publicised battle with drink and drugs – joined him at his Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

Elton John’s official autobiography was published by Macmillan on October 15, just months after his biopic Rocketman was released.
