I'll be there. Exited to get my signed copy of the book. Hoping he pulls out a guitar to play a song (or two).

I'll be in town for a parents weekend at my daughter's college. Wonder if there is any chance of Elvis playing any "unannounced" shows at a Boston pub? That would be something.

The guitar looks like it's a feature from now on.

My as-it-happened notes -

Usual topics with Peter. First question from the audience about Darlene Love.
Second question about making the Simpsons with the Rolling Stones. He's telling the story about the freezing support slot in Chicago.
Question about working with Bruce Thomas again - 'absolutely not!'. 'Too much hard work ' to work with him again.
Asked if 'whimsy' drove ' his 'musical compass. 'Lovely word but no'
Being asked if Get Happy was inspired by Laura Nyro. Maybe etc.
Being asked why Mick Jones was on the 'second album'. Reading a extract to explain it. Punk festival in Belgium in '77
Being asked about 'not recording anymore', as said in documentary . Says it was filmed just after Ross's passing so that's what he thought then. Since them Roots , Basement etc. Who knows what the future will bring?
Where do you get your inspiration, 'as you've grown and changed'. Read the book , his answer ( in essence). Now setting up for a song .
First , Elvis is praising Peter's books . Singing Deep Dark Truthful Mirror.

Over now. I only stumbled on a tweet about the stream after the show started so missed most of Peter's questions.

Caught the last bit with Peter, audience questions and song. Thanks for the heads-up. Hopefully they'll archive it.
