Elvis Costello: answering questions in The Guardian

Elvis Costello answered 10 readers questions in The Guardian. On playing with Neil Young:

The first time I played the Bridge School benefit in 1990, I heard this disembodied voice singing harmony during Alison, and Neil walked out with a hand mic. It was great. He played Slane Castle in Ireland when I lived there and my agent, who is also Neil’s, said I should surprise him and sing on Rockin’ in the Free World. I slunk on stage, Booker T from the MGs was singing backing and he pointed to a piano and said: “Take it, Elvis,” like in a dream.

He will be on tour in the UK with his band The Imposters, promoting his new album The Boy Named If (out on January 14).
