Biography
Elvis Costello Bio

Declan Patrick MacManus, widely known by his stage name Elvis Costello, began his musical journey way back in the ’70s, but reached prominence with the rise of the New Wave genre, through his distinctive, pub rock-fueled style of songwriting and musical delivery.
Album sales were never Costello’s forte, but like many class acts out there, that didn’t stop him from garnering a cult following and a status of a music icon.

Elvis emerged on the musical scene during the early ’70s as a part of growing pub rock scene in London. His debut album, “My Aim Is True,” saw its release in 1977, permanently associating the frontman with New Wave. The US platinum-certified debut was followed by 1978’s “This Year’s Model,” but at this point, Elvis already had a status of a rebellious fresh artist.

In 1977, he was scheduled to play “Less Than Zero” single on Saturday Night Live. Just as the band kicked off the tune, Costello yelled “Stop! Stop!” during a live broadcast, and began playing “Radio Radio” instead, a protest tune criticizing the commercialization of public broadcast airwaves. This garnered him plenty of publicity, along with an over decade-long ban from the show.

1979 saw the release of platinum-certified “Armed Forces.” The record featured “Oliver’s Army,” arguably the most successful Costello single to date, allowing the effort to cross the one million sales mark in the States.

The ’80s saw Elvis and co. working hard, continuously releasing albums and touring. Additionally, the band refused to get stuck in a formulaic approach, and always implemented different aspects to their sound, whether it was the soul infusion of 1980’s “Get Happy!!”, the tension-riddled “Trust” from 1981, country covers effort “Almost Blue,” also released in 1981, the dark, gloomy “Imperial Boredom” of 1982, or female vocal-enriched “Punch the Clock” from 1983.

By this time, the tensions within the band, especially between Elvis and bassist Bruce Thomas, began to culminate, resulting in Costello’s retirement from the band.

Seeing that Costello was the driving force behind the machinery, we kept releasing new material nevertheless, presenting the crowd with his intricate lyrics riddled with cunning wordplay. Numerous accolades were quick to follow, including a Grammy Award, induction into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003, as well as a No. 80 spot on Rolling Stone magazine’s 2004 list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.

On the personal side of things, Costello was married three times, and is known for a string of romances, including one with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler’s brief girlfriend and Liv Tyler’s mother Bebe Buell. After seeing the 1982 documentary “The Animal Film,” Elvis became a vegetarian. Furthermore, his 1983 tune “Pills and Soap” off “Punch the Clock” was inspired by the aforementioned documentary film. He is also known for his humanitarian efforts.

It’s a cruel world out there, but Mr. Costello is still chugging along  against it just fine. As the man himself once noted, “good manners and bad breath will get you nowhere.”
