Happy Birthday Elton!

By Devyani

The Pinner born superstar Elton John celebrated his 67th Birthday on Tuesday and to celebrate here are some surprising facts about him:

It is a well-known fact he changed his name from Reginal Kenneth Dwight to Elton John but did you know his adopted middle name is Hercules?

He was twice chairman of Watford Football Club. Elton credits them with helping him kick his drinking addictions

Elton John has mooned Michael Caine and Simon Cowell

He once ran onstage during an Iggy Pop concert dressed in a life like gorilla suit

His parents were alarmed by his music. His father wanted him to concentrate on classical pieces whereas his mother did not like his often raucous style of playing.

The Elton John Aids Foundation had raised more than £52m since it was established in 1992
