Co-presented by BAM and Greenlight Bookstore

Elvis Costello celebrates the launch of his idiosyncratic new memoir, Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink, offering his unique view of his unlikely rise to success, from playing a cardboard guitar in his living room to fronting a rock ’n’ roll band and performing in the world’s greatest concert halls. Written entirely by Costello himself and spanning the course of his nearly four-decade career, the book contains many stories and observations about the London-born singer-songwriter’s renowned co-writers and co-conspirators, while also pausing along the way for considerations on the less appealing side of infamy.

So why is it idiosyncratic? That’s the scary part. The cool part is, as his liner notes for his deluxe albums has proven, the man can write when he wants to… this is from Rolling Stone:

The book will find the My Aim Is True rocker looking back at his five-decade career over the course of the memoir’s 352 pages. “This is his story, written himself, rich with anecdotes about family and fellow musicians, introspective about the creation of his famous songs,” Penguin Publishing wrote in their overview of the autobiography.

While this might be Costello’s first official memoir, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer previously penned a 60,000-word reflection on his music and career in 2001 when Rhino reissued his 1977-1996 catalog. As Slate reported, a personal essay by Costello was packed in the liner notes of each album – 17 in all – but those reissues are long out-of-print and the essays were never officially republished. It’s unknown whether Unfaithful Music & Disappearing Ink will repurpose those essays or if the memoir is a completely new work.

So not the longest story ever told by any stretch of the imagination and what is strange is the man is a gasbag and so you’d expect him to tell the story long and hard. I remember seeing him at the “Spectacle” gig years ago and he kept on stepping all over his guests line…

Anyway, it is November 10th, and Rosanne cash is interviewing him and if you wanna buy a ticket check it out here
