Re: Elvis Costello cancels tour after surgery to remove 'aggressive' tumour

I received a message from a 'reliable source' on Tuesday or Wednesday, after speculation on Facebook about vocal surgery. To say it wasn't vocal surgery and that in the long term there was nothing to worry about. Elvis just needed rest. It looks like he is all clear just needs a rest. Thank God

I am off all day tomorrow I am going to chomping at the bit by 2.30. :D I will try and contain myself until the first world cup matches of the day finish and head for the pub about 5.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Newcastle upon Tyne, June 25, 2018

Elvis I think only worries when its Liverpool. We went to the RFH many years ago when England had a match in Turkey and we thought he would watch that. When we got in he had already been on 20 minutes

Heaton and Abbott are probably the bigger draw in the UK now I am afraid. They look like they are playing to decent crowds on the 'forestry live' circuit and have had two decent selling albums in the last couple of years.

The reviewer seemed very knowledgeable and more or less said what forum members had said in here.

Re: Big Issue interview , May 2018

The last few songs on North are 'Joy' songs where he meets and falls in love with Diana I would say. Especially Let me tell you about her. Frank Skinner when he interviewed him at the time said he didn't like him happy.
