Episode Summary

Things calm down a bit this week, at least in volume, as Rufus Wainwright joins Elvis for his unique and fascinating interview/performance show. The flamboyant young singer-songwriter, son of Loudon Wainwright III and Canadian folk legend Kate McGarrigle, talks not only about his music, but about what the Sundance web site delicately describes as "his complicated family dynamics and his status as an icon of the gay community". Wainwright ably demonstrates both his prowess at the piano and his powerful voice. His mother Kate makes a surprise appearance and joins in for a duet with her son. Although not appearing in the show, his father is represented by Elvis who covers one of his songs.moreless
