Elton John’s name turns 50 years old today…
On May 7, 1968, singer-songwriter Reginald Dwight legally changed his name. Reggie was in a band called “Bluesology” and he took his new first name from his bandmate Elton Dean and the new last name from Long John Baldry. Then for some reason he used “Hercules” for a middle name.
Yes you all know him now as Elton John.
Happy 50th New Name Birthday to Sir Elton!!!
