RNR News and Notes

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
