Jeff Lynne: Broad Street Star Now Replaced

Jeff Lynne originally received his Broad Street star on 13th March 2014
#811: Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! You may recall that ELO Beatles Forever (ELOBF) reported back in September that the Broad Street Walk of Stars award presented to The Idle Race, The Move, ELO and Traveling Wilburys maestro Jeff Lynne in March had been covered up due to extensive and irreparable damage. Rather belatedly, I'm is pleased to confirm that earlier this week, Yours Truly KJS found that Jeff's star (located next to the corner of the Symphony Hall building on Broad Street) has now been replaced (see above photograph).
Bev Bevan received his Broad Street star in April 2011
Roy Wood received his Broad Street star in November 2010
This means that the Broad Street stars for Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) founders Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood and Bev Bevan can now be found in close proximity to each other. Wouldn't it be great to also see ELO locals Richard Tandy and the late, great Kelly Groucutt given the same accolade?

Until next "Time" in the ELO (and related) Universe ... KJS ... 05-Dec-2014
