Here is what the book’s writer, Anthony Bozza said:

“As a fellow musical superstar with nearly 30 years of sobriety under his belt, Elton John was the perfect mentor to help guide Marshall. The two started on a program of weekly check-ins and grew very close.”

He continued:

“One day, he woke up in the ICU and was told he had taken the equivalent of four bags of heroin.

‘My organs were shutting down, my liver, kidneys, they were going to have to put me on dialysis, they didn’t think I was going to make it.

‘My bottom was going to be death,‘ he said.

But it wasn’t the final wake up call until he relapsed two more times and realized he was going to die.

He found help and support by making a call to an unlikely companion, Elton John, who help him get his life back.”
