Costello recently turned 60 and “is in the pantheon of elder statesmen musician/rockers,” according to Penguin, with a career which launched in style with his 1977 debut album, My Aim Is True. Along the way he built a global fanbase, produced The Specials’ great self-titled debut, collaborated with the likes of Paul McCartney and Questlove, and married Diana Krall.
