Watch Elvis Costello's 'Live From Isolation' Living Rooms Show for Artists4NHS

Elvis Costello is the latest artist to get in on the virtual 'living room concerts' during the coronavirus pandemic.  

 

Costello posted a pre-recorded that encouraged charitable giving to the National Health Service, Britain’s publicly funded healthcare system.

 

In the video - Costello answers some fan questions - including his opinion of Linda Ronstadt’s covers of his songs, including “Alison.”

 

His answer - 

“I have to be honest, when I heard her version, I thought she sang it well, but I really hated the arrangement”  but goes on to say “I was a little bit too full of myself, to say the least”

Apparenly no one told Elvis to film with his phone horizontal ... but whatever :P
