Re: NY Times - Interesting take on Elvis and Diana's relationship

One would think that Elvis could find the time to write a few songs for her so she doesn't have to rehash the oldies.

Re: Solo Tour USA March 2015

Wow! Three chances to see him in my state! Looks like he's cutting a path across the plains, into Dixie and down to Florida. I wonder if he's driving?!

Shit, I gotta get tickets...!

Re: Uncut Elvis Costello - Ultimate Music Guide - Magazine

I bought this today at the local Hasting's store. It was the last one on the shelf, which kind of surprised me at $14.00 per copy...that is, I didn't think there were that many hard core fans around here.

I will be looking at this mag for years...

Re: 2014 Wednesday Oct 29th LONDON, ENGLAND, Royal Albert Ha

I don't know how Elvis does it, really. Looking at the tour dates, the air travel alone would kill me. His voice is weary, and his age is showing. He's earned the self-indulgence, and we owe him an homage of respect. My wish is that after these tours he goes into a trance for five or six years and w...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

A curious turn has transpired since last I spoke of this recording. Last weekend beach bunny's daughter came to visit, and the conversation turned to music. Beach bunny blurted out that I like Frank Zappa and all that. I said I got Elvis Costello and the Roots on the player right now, it's awful! Be...

Going on about forty listens now it's starting to sink in. Meantimes is playing right now, and I don't even have a device powered up. My gal when she hears it says the ding don't mean a thing and she always thinks her egg is cooked. I can see how the first thirteen songs are becoming a classic seque...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

I picked up the deluxe version last week at Hastings. The deluxe version was all they stocked, $16.99. I didn't get a chance to really listen to it until I went back on the road. I listened to it probably sixteen times that day as I ran the route. It has that baffling quality that always gets tagged...

Re: New album for 2013: "Wise Up Ghost" (with The Roots!)

I am really enjoying the tracks released so far.

I have no criticisms.

I hope the full recording breaks into something a little more upbeat now and then. I tend to get sleepy.






...couldn't call it unexpected, or rock and roll.

Elvis always sounds great with horns.

It might be ironic...but if Americans are asked to give up their guns, and they don't, then the Feds try to take them with force, it WILL be a civil war.

Re: Graham Parker

Isn't it The Rumour that backs Elvis on Live at the Macambo ? They must have at least a cordial relationship. I've heard it said that Elvis stole GP's thunder. I think it's true to a certain extent, but after that first burst of New Wave video-driven popularity, both of them kind of fell to the ways...

Re: Close Up on Beyond Belief

I think it's about being famous and relating to ordinary people, or even trying to come off as being ordinary after acheiving fame.

If Elvis kncocked on your front door, wouldn't that be beyond belief?
