Elvis Costello performs (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding from his Vancouver home, by way of a contribution to a benefit campaign for the U.K.’s National Health Service, before entering into a long Q&A session using fan questions such as “What’s Your Favourite Album”. At one stage his TV suddenly switches on scaring the rock legend. He also turns off the lights and smashes a cover of Money at the end.
Elvis also talks about Chet Baker, Linda Ronstadt, Steve Nieve, and his classic album Trust. On today’s challenges, he commented: “Pretty much anything you do that adds to the solution rather than adds to the problem is the right thing to do, as you know. You don’t need me to tell you that.” Right on.
