That's a whole lotta pedals for somebody you don't necessarily tag as a ''guitar player'' really. Very cool stuff! Love what he does!
I bought a deluxe edition of "My Aim is True" a few years back that came with a second disc that has a live show from 1977 on it. it has become my favorite record of his. amazing energy. raw.I saw him in 2005, I think, and couldn't believe what a great guitarist, singer and showman he was. I always loved his music, but didn't know what a great "live" show he does. The show had to be over 2 hours long and he never let up. Underrated player, for sure!
My good friend is his FOH engineer. The tour only started on Monday didnt it?
For anyone interested. Costello's board from last night (3/4/15). Sorry, the stage lights were hot so I couldn't get a good photo before I had to put his pedalboard away.
Elvis sounded GREAT. He had two 65 Amps Lil' Elvis amps, and a Blackface Princeton. Played probably 100 guitars and two keyboards. He had a second smaller board set up in a different place with a TU2, Dark Echo, the same pink Zebra ish looking pedal from this pedalboard, and something else I can't remember.
