Jeff Lynne's ELO After a stint with classic Birmingham bands The Idle Race and The Move, Jeff Lynne co-founded The Electric Light Orchestra in 1971, one of the most successful groups of the seventies and eighties. Multiple hit singles and best selling albums followed making Jeff's anthemic ELO songs some of the most loved and recognisable of the last four decades. Jeff went on to a successful solo career and worked with many of his musical heroes including Brian Wilson, Paul McCartney, Del Shannon and The Everly Brothers. He also found time to co-found the ultimate supergroup in The Traveling Wilburys, who included pals Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Roy Orbison in their ranks.

  1. You going to ALL of them!
    How about telling your Spanish followers that Pugwash are doing some Spanish gigs?

  2. I don't have an ELO blog of my own, so I'll tell you here and now: I have obtained Per-Spek-Tiv, Louis CLark's only self-composed solo album, on CD. The quality of both sound and compositions is outstanding. Perhaps Louis should have released more original stuff. Perhaps not. Maybe not everyone should be pressured into endless creativity for years and years? Mayhaps.

    Did you ever make a post about this amazing forgotten album?
