Default Elvis Costello never to play 'England' again

Did anybody else see Elvis Costello's recent comments in NME? I particularly agree with this quote, "British music fans don't have the same attitude to age as they do in America, where young people come to check out, say, Willie Nelson. They feel some connection with him and find a role for that music in their lives."

Charles was just commenting on the Brits' odd musical taste, and it reminded me of Elvis' comments. Brits tend to have short, passionate love affairs with artists, rather than long, fulfilling marriages (I know, it's a big assumption that such things even exist). They go hot 'n heavy for a few albums, then kick them to the cirb the moment something new and exciting comes along. Americans, getting something right for a change, tend to stick with the artists they love -- like Willie Nelson -- a lot longer. Or at least this is my perception.

Below is the blurb in full. I wonder what the rest of y'all think.

Elvis Costello never to play 'England' again

Singer says Glastonbury performance put him off playing homeland

Elvis Costello has indicated that he will never play in England again.

The singer-songwriter who was born in Paddington, London, but who now lives in New York, has said he is not bothered if he plays in the land of his birth ever again.

"I don't care if I ever play in England again," he declared, sighting his appearance at Glastonbury in 2005 as the reason he would not play a rock show in the country again.

Describing the festival set as "****ing dreadful", he said: "That gig made up my mind that I wouldn't come back. I don't get along with it. We lost touch. It's 25 years since I lived there. I don't dig it, they don't dig me."

Costello, however, said he did like the country's music scene, but just felt he was no longer connected to it.

"A lot of good bands still come out of England, but I just don't feel a part of it," he told Mojo. "British music fans don't have the same attitude to age as they do in America, where young people come to check out, say, Willie Nelson. They feel some connection with him and find a role for that music in their lives."

Default Re: Elvis Costello never to play 'England' again

The cream of the British music scene floats on top of tons and tons of Sh*t. If you follow the music mags and sites the lovely people of the isles go for some of the worst poop imaginable. Remember the Spice Girls are still HUGE in merry ol' and they aren't even as capable as Britney (although I'd really like to give Sporty Spice a sports massage). I couldn't use the word GOOD in a sentence with the name Britney but you get the idea.
