Steve Murphy and Party Of The Century:
Giorgio and Steve got in touch via Godfrey Townsend! When Giorgio told Godfrey about joing POTC, he even asked him if he could spread the voice about it to his bandmate Steve Murphy.
When Steve and Giorgio got in touch, they discovered to be both deeply fond of Elton John and Toto's music! That was simply perfected for Giorgio who discovered a precious new friend and happier than ever, told Steve that an Elton John cover was planned for The Party Of The Century project.
The song is not a common Elton track, but it definitely recollects the POTC spirit!
Steve has been doing an incredible singing work on Friends, laying down a great lead vocal and multiple layers of backing vocals!
