Elvis Costello makes a Spectacle of Himself

It always comes back to a few special musicians for us. One of these is the legendary Elvis Costello. His new cable series involving lots of interviews and live performances called, "Spectacle: Elvis Costello with..." promises to make an even bigger fan of me! Spectacle premiered last night on the Sundance Channel at 9 EST (US). (I regret to tell you I missed the first episode - starring Sir Elton John. There's an embedded video below.) But a whole season's worth (13 episodes) of goodness is in store. Check your local listings for Sundance and get in on this one!
