Elvis Costello & Billie Joe Perform “Alison”

Cool clip (ok, half cool) from the Decades Rock Live tribute to Elvis Costello airing Friday on VH1 Classic.

Rolling Stone notes: Billie Joe is the nervous one in leather and eyeliner whisper/singing like he’s at a high school talent show and Costello is the badass in shades belting it out like he’s in the shower.

Watch. (QT)

Fiona Apple and Death Cab also perform. This is what they covered.

The next Decades Rock salutes the Pretenders. It films 8/11 at the Trump Taj Mahal and features Iggy Pop, Incubus, Shirley Manson, and Kings of Leon. I’m guessing Shirley will duet with Chrissie on “Talk Of The Town.”
