I see an OM symbol on his guitar in the Tom Petty/Ringo/Harrison video. I’m wondering when he discovered Eastern religious philosophy? I came here looking for that. Perhaps with the Beatles when they met Maharishi?
Jeff Lynne is the most talented and gifted singer songwriter who’s ever lived. Paul Mccartney can’t even compare.
Why compare? No need to!
Great vs Great!
I always loved ELO songs & listened to them so much. Was such great music. I wish I could have seen them in concert. Heard the music & lights together was phenomenal. Well I wish my house was paid for too! Ok am a hard working nurse and do not go to many concerts cause tickets are kinda expensive and when I was starting family, I had too many material house things that I needed then. Well I am still working as a nurse full time (5 days per week when use to be 12 hr shifts or just 2 doubles). Sometimes it seems like I am working more now. But now I would love to go to a ELO concert. Dang! Still gotta make that house payment too though. I’d but a ticket now if I could- their music was so great & takes me back. Thanks for the music & memories!!
Mr Jeff Lynne,the most talented,singer guitarist drums,percussion,backing vocals,writer,producer,to come from great Britain,the best there is the best you can get.
Jeff Lynne is in a league of his own, all the greats admire his talent. Tom Petty said he was the best musician/producer he has ever worked with. George Harrison said he was a musical wizard. Paul McCartney said he was unbelievable who could do it all. He has remained very humble and down to earth from his working-class upbringings. He has a great sense of humor and doesn’t take himself seriously. His music is still as popular as it was in the 70s, ELO was the world’s top band in the 70s and 80s.Its reported that he is planning a new album with a final world tour very soon, Covid permitting. He was touring every year since 2014 when he made a brilliant comeback in 2012 to the public, until Covid cancelled his last World Tour. He has always been a private family man and has his own studio at home, where its reported he is in there every day doing something in music. It’s been reported he has thousands of unreleased materials from throughout his career, a gold mine of music waiting to be released one day. He recently said in a video to fans that he is working on new music which hopefully we will hear soon. His longtime girlfriend Camila Kath for many years, recently got married in a quiet affair. The fans and music industry are hoping something from Jeff will happen soon.
Met Jeff Lynne in Andy’s Restaurant and Pub in Greenport, NY on 22 Aug 22. Very nice man and interesting. A lot of fun to talk to. Hope to see him again some day.
My brother bough the “Out of The Blue ” in 1979 and after hearing him play it I was hooked on ELO. Jeff Lynne ha to be one of the all time greatest musicians of all time, he has made sounds never heared before by having microphones set up in his house etc to record unusual sounds and he uses them in his music “who else does this”? Anyway, I was lucky enough to see him in Manchester UK and he absolutely blew the roof off the MEN Arena, my wife got me tickets for my birthday and came with me. My wife has never followed ELO and her brother also attended the concert who has also never attended an ELO concert. My wife loves 80’s music and has been to lots of her favorite bands concerts over the years even queuing up all night for Frankie Goes to Hollywood etc but on exiting the MEN Arena she said to me that the ELO concert was the best concert that she had EVER been to and her brother also admitted the same. ELO are by far the best musical experience that you could ever have, even the lighting experience is the best by a mile so I would say any people thinking otherwise please give it a go as the music is captivating and Jeff Lynne is a true geniuse of past and present music. Totally amazing.
