Re: 40 Years Ago

So, 40 years ago today I attended my first Elvis Costello gig at the Roundhouse in London. A scene setting is probably overkill but I still feel excited about it and this nostalgia is a bit precious to me ! I was brought up in a village in West Devon in a most rural setting and had a sheltered happy...

Re: 'Painted From Memory' on Broadway

A tour with Steve and orchestra would also give Elvis the chance to play more from A Face In The Crowd in the arrangement he's probably got in his head !

Re: Elvis when you least expect it

I’ve twice dreamt that I was playing bass in The Attractions, once at a garden party in aid of a church and I’ve been so desperate not to make s mistake. I’ve akso dreamt I was playing bass for LED Zeppelin , a band I could never get into on Plymouth Hoe and Robert Plant moaning at me because I didn...

Re: Reissue catalogue in a mess?

Oh Jack, that's so poignant and accurate - we can dream of recapturing our past but the excitement and amazement I felt with Get Happy can never be achieved by any other musician, let alone bb Elvis, and I now can acknowledge "there'll never be days like that again !"

Re: Elvis song taught at 'O'-level?

I heard this at Exeter in 1981 when The Attractions played this at break-neck speed and Elvis garbled everything except the incredible bridge -(one of my favourite topics, Elvis' amazing bridges in songs - don't get me started !) It seemed like Elvis called either Secondary Modern or Motel Matches a...

Re: Elvis (solo) plays benefit in Austin, TX, Oct. 22, 2017

Not a brand new act but maybe some of the songs he'd resurrected for the IB and Other Chambers tour or even some of the Face In The Crowd songs done with Larkin Poe ? Didn't seem like too much to ask for a little variation from the Detour gigs that have been running for two + years!
