Nick Jonas And Elvis Costello TALK SONGWRITING

FROM ROLLING STONE: In the current issue of Rolling Stone, Elvis Costello superfan Nick Jonas sits down with his idol to talk about writing habits and handling fame. ‘As far as fans go: The only difficult thing is when they go in our house,’ says Jonas. ‘That’s kind of odd for anybody, I think.’

Costello sympathizes, as he spent his early days as a pop sensation. ‘Around 1978, every single we released in England was a hit,’ he says. ‘It was hard to take seriously when it was happening, because I just thought it was so absurd. I was suspicious of the success.

    THAT’S HIS HERO!

  34. sunny Says:

    what a great expeirence for nick!
    i so jealous!
    elvis is LEGEND!
    i like costello more then presely.

  35. Saraaaa Says:

    Elvis Costello is legend.

    And you people are so annoying;
    the only reason you “like” him is cause Nick’s a huge fan.
    Come on, do your research before you’re like, “OMGGGGZzZzzzzZZZZzZZ ELVIS COSTELLOOOOOO! AHHH YAYYYY NICKIEEEEE!”
    If you don’t even know who he is,
    GO AWAY.

    I LOVE JB with all my heart, but Elvis Costello is probably bigger than they’ll even be close to. And if you knew who he truly was, you’d agree. I’m happy for Nick cause he’s in the presence of a musical god, and I KNOW who Elvis is.
    Don’t pretend you do.

    Some JB fans.
    GOD.
