Liverpool legend and Epi fan Elvis Costello recently announced four dates with the Imposters in the New York City area March 7, 8, 9, and 11 to preview new material for an upcoming album perhaps for later this year. Visit his website for details and look for more good news soon. Also check out Costello's new song,  "You Shouldn't Look at Me That Way Now," written for the film, Film Stars Don't Die in Liverpool starring Annette Bening and Jamie Bell.

Costello is a big fan of classic Epiphones and has been seen on stage with a Casino ("my first Epiphone, of course"), a Sheraton II PRO, as well as an Epiphone Zephyr Emperor Regent Tenor (similar in body style and tone to the new Masterbilt Century Collection). Visit Costello's website for further tour details and check out EC live in North Carolina as he puts his Zephyr Emperor Regent through its paces on stage with producer and fellow "Coward" Brother (as the two called themselves in the 80s) on a smoking cover of Chuck Berry's, "Don't Lie to Me."
