(Radio.com) Elton John's 'no-holds-barred" as-yet-untitled memoir is in the works after the music star landed a publishing deal. Publishers Pan Macmillan and Henry Holt announced Thursday (Oct. 13) that they have jointly acquired worldwide rights for the autobiography, reports The New York Times.

A representative for Holt said the company had won out over two other publishers after representatives for each traveled to Atlanta to meet with Mr. John and his husband, David Furnish. The terms of the deal were undisclosed.

"I'm not prone to being a nostalgic person," John said in a statement. "I'm often accused of only looking forward to my next gig or creative project. It's come as quite a surprise how cathartic I am finding the process of writing my memoirs.

"As I look back, I realize what a crazy life I have had the extreme privilege of living… My life has been one helluva roller coaster ride and it's still lumbering on." Read more here.
