Party Till You Puke

Album: Rock the Nations (1986)
  • songfacts ®
  • This is one song a certain world-famous pianist appears to have omitted from his discography; the title explains why. In his memoir Never Surrender..., Saxon's frontman Biff Byford described how Elton John came to play on it.

    Obviously a fun track, unless you have the job of cleaning up afterwards.

    Although he is not heavy metal himself, Elton has long been a metal fan and once in the late 1970s DJ'd a Capital Radio programme in which he introduced some new metal talent. >>
