Re: Artists who were influenced by Elvis Costello

I would suggest, The Arctic Monkeys, although this is hard to pin down in print. Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys is a fan and influenced by Elvis. This BBC News review of ‘’Look Now’’ says that “With his own brand of witty, observational songwriting, Alex Turner is one of a long line of young British ...
