I went on Elton Johns Website http://www.rocketmusic.com/contact and there was a link to request an autograph.
They responded in about 3 months.

I don't normally complain about getting fake autographs but this really pushed my buttons!

Let me tell you why I was totally dissapointed by this and why I would rather receive an autopen autograph than this pathetic picture they sent me.
A. Why would you put an autograph request link on your website when you are aware you are going to be sending the person just a picture of a picture.
B. If they are so backed up with a million request then why are they wasting time sending this to me!?
C. I would rather wait 3+ years to get a real autograph rather than get this picture of a picture.
D. Why would they waste money sending this from the U.K. With a piece of cardboard, a well printed picture( which to me is a waste of paper and ink), and you send me this letter on thick card stock paper(also not cheap) just to tell me hey here is a photo of a photo.
WHY would they not just wait until they can send you the real thing??...and if they can't then take that autograph request link off the website! End of rant.

Its a preprint. Lots of celebrities send them and that specific one is what he's been sending for years.

Yea it's nothing new for Elton and MANY other celebs send fake ones out. So, not sure if you have much experience in this or not, but check around first to see who sends what BEFORE you send to them...cause there may be a lot of disappointment like this one if you don't ask first.... {up}

Sorry about this.

Very true. All we can hope for is a change in signing habits or in person. One of my most wanted! I just noticed they are still sending out the same photo I received several years back. :lol:
