    Elton John Incredible Signed Document Regarding His Name Change (1972). Superb document signed "Elton Hercules John," one page, 8 x 13, dated February 9, 1972. An official Notification of Change form for John's publishing company, William A. Bong, Ltd., the form formerly recognizes John's legal name change. In part, "On 7th January Reginald Kenneth Dwight changed his name by Deed Poll and is hereforth to be known as Elton Hercules John." Some vertical fold lines from previous folding, otherwise in fine condition. In addition to the document's prominence in relation to John's career, this stands as the only document we have ever seen that is signed in full with his middle name. An exceedingly rare and unique document for the serious Elton John collector! From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
