Ladies And Gentlemen - The Electric Light Orchestra



Jeff Lynn is one of my early rock gods. John Lennon once said that if the Beatles hadn't broken up, then they would have evolved into ELO.

My favorite band, the lead singer was big into ELO. So because of them doing covers I ended up getting into ELO. There's a real brilliance in the writing that I love.

Lennon really said that? About ELO??

Bloody hell, that's the first time I've ever been thankful that the Fab Four split up...

One of my favorite bands. : )

Everyone needs a little bit of ELO.

My daughter became an ELO fan because of the Doctor Who episode LOVE AND MONSTERS. I loved ELO back in the day, so we downloaded the entire discograpohy. She now knows more about them than I ever did.

Mister Blue Sky is our favourite track.
