    Regarding Anonymous' post, April 5, 2012: Did you read the book?

    Regarding Anonymous' post, April 5, 2012: Did you read the book? Are you fully aware of Costello's vast career? Costello really was only angry and belligerent artist in the early years. He actually is considered somewhat of a musical statesman at this point in his career. And, it can be argued that very few musicians possess the musical brilliance that he has demonstrated. Who else has created such amazing music across so many genres? Punk, rock, symphonic, opera, country (his first true musical love and influence was/is country).
