Sadly, Tramps would permanently close its doors in 1999. For one of the venue’s final shows, Bob Dylan stopped by for a rare club appearance. The performance captures Dylan at his best in the kind of intimate, downtown setting where he got his start. Even better, Dylan ends the show by bringing Elvis Costello onstage. Check out their duet of “I Shall Be Released” below.

EC and Burt were true pioneers.

Apparently Sparks and Morrisey have adopted that way of working as well.

On yesterday's BBC2 panel quiz, Richard Osman's House of Games, the final round is Answer Smash where the answer is a mash up of the name in the object/person in photo and answer to question on screen.

The Photo was of Elvis and the question was "Which fictional hero had a sidekick called Tonto and horse caller Silver?"

Answer: Elvis Costellone Ranger :D

I found this:

Danny Ferrington "Elvis Costello" Acoustic

At 0:39 in this performance of William it Was Really Nothing on Top Of The Pops on August 30 in 1984, Johnny Marr can be seen playing this guitar.

Custom guitar made by luthier Danny Ferrington for Elvis Costello, used on August 30th 1984 in a performance of "William, It Was Really Nothing" on Top Of The Pops. This guitar was apparently loaned to Johnny by Elvis for this performance. It was also used by Aztec Camera on another episode of TOTP, after which Roddy Frame had Ferrington make two guitars for him inspired by this Costello acoustic.

Isn't there an obscure track that I don't own connected with a Ferrington guitar giveaway by Elvis ? Looking on the wiki it's called May 27th - has anyone heard it ?

It's "May 17th" (which was Elvis and Cait's anniversary). It's a short instrumental.
