Married to the great Elvis Costello.

One of the most incredible shows I've ever seen.  we drove down from Flagstaff to Tucson (about 4-5 hours), thinking, "oh she's not thaaaaaaaaaaaat popular, surely we can just walk up and get tickets".  Small theatre in tucson, about 1,000 (if that, "Temple of Music And Art").  (This was around 1997 or so when she was 'famous' but not like, HUGELY famous.)

Sold out.  sold teh fark out.  talk about a buzzkill.  the Deadhead in me started asking for extras.  "nope, sorry."  my wife was crushed.  "I told you the other day, buy ticekts online.  grrr!!!"

then this middle aged man walks up to me.  "excuse me, I'm a doctor, and I just got an on-call message.  I saw you looking for tickets. Please.  Take these.  I insist."  "oh wow, really?  Let me at least pay you - "   "No, it's ok, just enjoy yourself.  and pay it forward someday."  I was stunned.  shook his hand, thanked him.

second row dead center.  she blew our minds.  the interplay between the band.  the arched eyebrow, the sly smiles, we could her raw voice, "keep going!", as a player took a solo.  absolutely magical night.

/and yes, I have paid it forward since, several times.

and kinda bum-out story.....story goes in the early 00s or whatever, towards the end of his life, Ray Charles went to one of her concerts and had his people tell her people, "Mr. Charles would like to meet you."  Supposedly, Elvis got word and as politely as he could, asked if he could come too.

"No. Mr. Charles has no interest in meeting you, just her."

/google it, kids.

Charles heard Costello singing "She" at the beginning of the movie Notting Hill and said, "WTF was THAT about?"

Elvis Costello droning that dirge of a ballad or Roseann Barr singing the National Anthem?

I am embarrassed to say that he sings "She" at the END of Notting Hill, not the beginning.

Before you chastise me, please remember that I am just a Farker posting in front of another Farker, asking them to not insult me.

Damn... Spider Webs in Ray Charles head... So - Did she desert her hubby to meet Ray, or did she tell him to Hit The Road, Jack?

Damn.. I see WHY:

"Costello's standing in the U.S. was bruised for a time when in March 1979, during a drunken argument with Stephen Stills and Bonnie Bramlett at a Holiday Inn bar in Columbus, Ohio, the singer referred to James Brown as a "jive-ass n****r", then upped the ante by pronouncing Ray Charles a "blind, ignorant n****r"

I hope she DID leave Costello waiting, now...

His standing wasn't all that got bruised. Bramlett fed him a knuckle sandwich.

No insult, but if you purposefully tricked me into checking, you'll get your comeuppance in the afterlife. It opens with a montage of "Anna Scott" and -- despairingly -- Costello bellowing that dirge. And then at then end we get Dirge Deux over Roberts smiling face at her press conference when Hugh Grant comes to her rescue. I actually really enjoy the movie except for the turd-in-the-punchbowl appearance of that song. This time, fortunately, I didn't have to eat the whole omlet to discover that particular egg was bad.

It's actually a kind of marvel to discover that there are people who are more tone deaf than me. Several people, in fact. There had to have been staff meetings at which they poured over alternatives, and their grand concurrence was that Elvis Costello's 3 minutes of bellyache was worth hearing twice. And more than that. People imagined that song would bookend our delight.

As far as coolness goes she's the female equivalent of Leonard Cohen (RIP).

For some reason Clapton gets slagged off, and the other EC usually gets a pass.  Bramlett slapped the shiat out of Costello for that comment.

dereksmalls: other EC usually gets a pass


Costello has repeatedly apologized for and owned his farkup, Clapton, to my knowledge, has not.

This is one of those instances when I loathe the movie, but love the soundtrack. Minus that song, of course. I've never liked Elvis Costello.

Robert Plant?  Isn't that Allison Krauss?  Not sure Diana Krall has Farkall to do with him.
