Well, I wouldn't say I'm the leading authority on Costello, but considering my next book is tentatively titled Between Wisdom & Murder: An Elvis Costello Reference Guide
*, I feel that I can say ... probably not. 'Accidents Will Happen' was written mostly about his personal life at the time, much like most of Elvis's stuff. He rarely, if ever, took potshots at "older" bands in song.
* Look for Between Wisdom & Murder: An Elvis Costello Reference Guide
in fine bookstores everywhere, as soon as I finish it and get it published.
