Would Steely Dan count? I mean, they've almost always gotten crack musicians for their albums, but they get some of the best in the business. What rock band has Bernard Purdie, Wayne Shorter, Jeff Porcaro, Jeff Baxter, etc., on their albums? Just incredible players...but never really did they have t...

at any rate, if it's really him, why didn't he post something from the tour? Like, him with a beer in his hand or something, eh? :D

"What Do I Do Now" by EC (a cover tune by Sleeper). In a miserable relationship with a man I loved more than anything, but the guy was a jealous maniac. Listening to that song over and over, thinking about leaving, wishing he would stop spying on me and having me followed, feeling like a dumbass and...

Well, Boom, baby, I don't know if my ass could handle an official website... I was thinking about what BlueChair said--sure, the album isn't on Island, but "elviscostello.com" was owned by Rhino a few years ago. Why not just switch owners of the domain for the new album? It makes no sense at all to ...

Official Website My Ass...

I went over there for a moment to see if they'd done anything with it since last year. Not a thang. "There's no current US news for Elvis Costello," it says. Never mind that he's touring the US and Canada. Never mind that he played the Taste of Chicago last week. Never mind that he has a new album c...

My dad--Not a professional musician now, but he would silly songs for my older sister and me and tell us stories with his guitar bef...

Damn it! Damn it, damn it, damn it! He'll most likely play some of the tunes from the new album in Chicago this Sunday, and I won't be there.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, Blue, I can't make it to the Chicago show. The "wife" (as I sometimes call my overly sensitive boyfriend) is having another of his "you-don't-love-me-anymore-why-won't-you-pay-more-attention-to-me-I-want-all-of-your-time-me-me-me-me" episodes, so he wants to st...

Oh, come off it, Cope. What's wrong with a little free thinking? I think the lyrics are weaker than his usual writing. Doesn't mean they won't sound good. But, from where I'm standing, it doesn't do much for me. And, you know, Cope, I've been waiting for you to call me Candyass. I love it, you know....

As do I, Spookeriffic. I wish I hadn't seen the lyrics either. But we saw them, and we know they don't sound like "typical Costello". Not droll, not bilious, not snide, not razor-sharp. Doesn't mean he won't pull it off and make me eat my words.

Doesn't mean that he will, either.

King of COnfidence : "I've been irritated to see people actually seeming to begrudge a guy being in love and daring to try to write songs about it. I tried several times to post, and could not quite capture what bugged me. Jackson's post was the perfect antidote to this whole stupid conversation. "...
