This is the story of the Middlesex-born singer's formative years, including his childhood, his first break in the British music business and his rise to stardom on both sides of the Atlantic in the 1970s. As well as interviews with the singer himself, the programme also features the memories of colleagues and collaborators including lyricist Bernie Taupin and Leon Russell, with whom he worked on 2010 album The Union.
