Didn't know who Costello was either, until you mentioned it here.

Damn, my memory is still good!

But what I read and listen to is so off mainstream...

His early stuff (Mule Variations, etc) is from before he blew out his voice. It was still rough, but more just soaked in the vat and hung in the smokehouse. It hadn't been run over by the car yet.

Btw, Diana Krall is married to Elvis Costello.
Gives hope to an aging hippie like me... :P
Just found this out a week or so ago. I meant to put it on the Learned Something New thread. But it doesn't do you any good. Elvis was a punk, not a hippie.

True about punk v. hippie genre-wise, but he and I are almost the same age, and he has branched, at least based on his short-lived TV show on Sundance channel, beyond punk musically.

The point about an aging, rather unremarkable looking guy, such as Elvis or myself, ending up with DK stands...

Heck, even if you were butt ugly you could still end up with Julia Roberts.

I do not remember when, but I stopped coveting actresses and female singers long ago. I like to hear them sing and act, but would not know what they would be like in real life. I do not envy Costello and Lovett. And who's to say these twodidn't attract women with their talents, though I am not their fan?
