Re: London meet up - Saturday 27th January

Always a joy to meet everyone, and to find Mark is about to be overtaken in the putting stakes by his son (!)

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...
