Elton John To Release Book On AIDS


Rocket Man plans to write about his experiences with the disease

He's a knight, he's a queen, and he's a pop star. But that's not enough for Elton John: He's about to add "author" to that already-impressive resume.

His book, Love is the Cure: Ending the Global AIDS Epidemic, will be published in July along with an audio book--and as the title suggests, it will focus mostly on the AIDS crisis. However, John plans on taking a new approach to the crisis by chronicling his own personal experiences with the disease. After all, some of his closest friends--such as Queen's Freddie Mercury -- have fallen victim to it.

That's not to say that the book will come without a message: John has been raising awareness for HIV/AIDS for much of his life, and he hopes this book will encourage people to think differently about the disease.

"[AIDS] is a disease that must be cured not by a miraculous vaccine, but by changing hearts and minds, and through a collective effort to break down social barriers," he said to The Associated Press.

All proceeds from the book will go to the Elton John AIDS foundation, a nonprofit established by John in 1992.
