Sir Elvis! Awesome.

Elvis Costello gets OBE from Prince Charles saying his musician father who once performed at Buckingham Palace staff party 'would've loved the idea of one of us coming through the front door'

I'm afraid not.
OBE stands for the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
For him to be entitled to call himself "Sir" he would have to be awarded a KBE (Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire).

I'd still call him Sir. The man is an absolute genius.

Well damn. And I did check before posting - apparently the internet isn’t infallible. Silly kniggits. (Still, don’t we want a ‘Sir Elvis’ in our world?)
