Elvis Costello, Priceless

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Nov• 29•11

You’ve just gotta love this breaking story about Elvis Costello. The man who made Buddy Holly glasses cool again is urging fans to boycott his latest album box set because the $225 price tag “appears to be either a misprint or a satire,” he writes. Mr. Costello urges listeners willing to depart with that much cash to buy a Louis Armstrong collection instead. 

If this is a PR gimmick, it’s brilliant.  If it’s sincere, it’s inspirational. Chalk up a victory for personal ethics.
