ELLIOT MURPHY IS GOING TO BE A MONSTER That's exactly what giant New York City subway posters boldly prophesied in 1973 after the release of this Long Island singer-songwriters critically praised debut album Aquashow. In this honest and gripping memoir Elliott Murphy describes a childhood of show biz affluence, the tragic loss of a famous father, a European sojourn where he encountered Federico Fellini and a love for the old world, and perhaps most provocatively, his journey through the minefields of rock stardom where he fittingly describes true success as best being measured in terms of pure survival. From the glam world of 1970's Manhattan to fabled LA recording studios and on to what was left of swinging London before finally finding his home, love and a faithful public in Paris, Just A Story From America, is an insightful journey into the daunting world of the music business from the unique perspective of an internationally acclaimed artist you may never have heard of even while songs such as Last of the Rock Stars, Drive all Night and A Touch of Kindness travelled on radio-airwaves all around the world for decades. A moving and not often heard story told from the perspective of an artist who has gone from celebrity to anonymity and back again and lived to tell the tale.
