THE MUSIC AND PRESTON BLACK, Elvis Costello And The Imposters, Gathering Of The Vibes Seaside Park, Bridgeport, Connecticut 7/23/2011


     "Preston Black. Pleased to meet you."
     He put his hand on my shoulder. "You should be famous with a name like that."
     Mick pinched my cheek. "He's trying, Lou. He's trying."
     Lou asked, "Elvis Presley or Elvis Costello?"
     "Costello. Please."
     Lou said, "That's what's wrong with this world," and made his way to the front of the store, squeezing between Mick and me.

Buy the book on Amazon.

Elvis Costello is music most well-known enigma. Everybody knows him, nobody buys his records. He sounds like a lot of stuff you've heard, and like nobody else.

Not sure if it's because of the hat or not, but I look at him as the last of the songwriters. The ones who mattered. Would "Pump It Up" or "Radio, Radio" stand a chance today? I'd like to think they're good enough that they would.

Here's an amazing show to get your little Elvis Costello toes wet. Download it at Sugarmegs.
