Elvis Costello & Lou Adler
Elvis Costello: "I remember sitting at a table watching 'Rockpile' in '78 and [legendary producer Lou] Adler being on the other side of the table. He handed me a piece of paper. I signed it and handed it back to him. It was his phone number [laughs]. I was being a pop star: Put a piece of paper in front of me, and I'll autograph it. I felt like such an idiot when people told me who he was. This is the guy who made the Mamas and the Papas' records!"
