Elvis Costello Doesn’t Want You to Buy His New Box Set

He might be willing to mug with Muppets, but when it comes to record companies ripping off his fans, Elvis Costello isn’t fooling around — and he recently proved it with a sarcasm-drenched post on his official site, prompted by the eyebrow-raising price tag on his new deluxe live box set, ‘The Return of the Spectacular Spinning Songbook.’

Saying “the price appears to be either a misprint or a satire,” Costello told fans that he’s “unable to recommend” the ‘Songbook’ box, and took the “unusual step” of recommending an alternative use for his fans’ money.

Judas Priest’s K.K. Downing on Leaving Band: ‘I Wish Things Could Have Been Different’

When guitarist and founding member K.K. Downing left Judas Priest earlier this year, it came as a surprise, but it wasn’t exactly a shock. He’s 60 years old, after all, and had definitely done his time in the trenches after spending more than 40 years in the studio and on the road. In fact, a lot of people assumed he was retiring to pursue a life of well-deserved leisure, running the golf courses on his property.

As it turns out, Downing’s reasons for leaving the band were a little more complicated — and all too familiar to anyone who’s watched their favorite bands splinter over personality conflicts. Without getting too deeply into the specifics, Downing revealed in a recent interview that it “pretty much came down to an unsettlement on my part with working relationships.”

Eagles Guitarist Joe Walsh Reveals Reason for Calling New Solo Album, ‘Analog Man’

Joe Walsh has a history of coming up with tongue-in-cheek titles for his solo albums, including ‘You Can’t Argue with a Sick Mind,’ ‘Got Any Gum?,’ and, of course, ‘You Bought It — You Name It.’ But for his upcoming release, due in the winter of 2012, he decided on a more reflective name: ‘Analog Man.’

Walsh explained the title during a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock, saying, “I know in the past, I’ve had screwy album titles, but I decided to call it ‘Analog Man.’ Because, you know, my generation of musicians, we grew up analog, and now it’s a digital world. We had to learn it, you know?”
