#555: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! It was nice to be around when Roy Wood, Bev Bevan and Trevor Burton received recognition from their beloved Birmingham hometown for their musical legacy.
Hence, it is good news indeed to now hear that it was announced by The Examiner on Thursday 20th June that Jeff Lynne will receive a famed Hollywood Walk Of Fame star in his adoptive hometown Los Angeles in 2014 for his musical legacy too alongside acclaimed Motown songwriters Holland Dozier Holland and others.
The ELO supremo is, of course, a multiple recipient of the Ivor Novello Award - as is Roy Wood - but has not [yet] been acknowledged for his huge body of work by the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Foundation despite by being preceded by some questionable and slightly less deserving inductees in the opinion of ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] and not a few others.
Well deserved congratulations are extended to Jeff by Yours Truly KJS and ELOBF for being awarded this well known and cherished accolade. We now look forward to his first full solo album of new material since 1990 later this year-ish ...
Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 22-June-2013
