Elton John Biography: Early Years (1947-1976) Born March 25th, 1947, Reginald Kenneth Dwight was a child prodigy at the piano. He eventually joined the band Bluesology, but he wanted more. He auditioned for other bands, and this was how he met lyricist Bernie Taupin. Soon, under the name Elton John, this artist shot to the top of the charts with successful singles like “Your Song,” and even made his mark in America.
