#660: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Jeff Lynne summarized his participation in "The Night That Changed America" on his official Facebook page earlier today [Monday 10th February] with these words of wisdom:
"I felt very honoured to be performing in this tribute to The Beatles. What a great thing! I get to play with some of the greatest musicians and do Beatles numbers on the telly! I must say it was a lot of fun. Don Was has got a great band together and he really helped drive it along with his terrific bass playing. I hope the show is as good as I hope it is! ... Love from Jeff"
