Classic Costello: Saturday Night Live (1977)

Birthday boy Elvis Costello's scandalous appearance with The Attractions on Saturday Night Live in December 1977 more than made up for a last-minute cancellation by the Sex Pistols.

Costello, forbidden to play Radio Radio, played it anyway. Lorne Michaels banished the man his mum calls Declan from the show for a dozen years; history has proven that punishment very light, given that most of them were not the show's best.

Anyway, it never done 'im no 'arm, eh? He married Diana Krall, had twins, and they all lived happily ever after...
