Between his memoir and his biopic, it’s been a big year for Elton John. But John isn’t known for taking it easy. Excess styling and dramatic flair is what shapes his star persona and characterizes his over-the-top concerts, even if his ballads are universally adored for their quiet tenderness and earnest sense of fun.
