Happy Birthday, Elvis Costello and the Attractions!
Born Declan Patrick Aloysius MacManus on August 25, 1954, Elvis Costello is an English singer-songwriter. Costello began his career in British pub rock in the early 1970s, transitioning easily into punk and new wave in the mid- to late-1970s. Two of the Attractions - Costello’s backing band formed in 1978 - also celebrated their birthdays this month: on August 9, Pete Thomas (drums) and, August 14, Bruce Thomas (bass guitar). Learn more about these 2003 inductees at the Library and Archives.
