Does Anyone have a copy --Tape or CDR of Jeff's Inteview on Xm/Sirius Radio--"Deep Tracks"--Oct 29th 2012. w/host Jim Ladd. Must be complete. I've got some ELO/Solo stuff to trade. email@example.com Thanks a lot
Initially due on May or June, the new album of Jeff Lynne should be delayed. Actually, he is still in studio to finalise his solo project. According to his daughter Laura on Facebook, he is recording some backing vocals.
Please leave your tributes to the late Kelly Groucutt on the comments box at the bottom of this article. We're sending it on to his family. x
I LOVE Armchair Theatre- I took it on holiday the summer it was released (1990?), and listened to it on replay the entire time, it still makes me feel like I'm driving through Spain. The best thing he ever did, and that's saying a lot!
...and Jeff is a genius. It's really amazing that he's not in The Hall yet. Unfortunately, while ELO produced some industry-changing material, their marketing/public relations seems to have been lacking...
Uh, yeah, Jeff is a genius, or else the remaining three beatles plus randy newman, roy orbison, tom petty, and bob dylan (to name a few) wouldn't have turned to him for production talents.
I'm pretty sure everyone who hasn't lived under a rock has heard a song worked on by Jeff. Be it Free Fallin', Got My Mind Set On You, or even an ELO tune.
What's REALLY ironic is the fact he has The Travelling Wilburys, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, George Harrison, etc etc in his top artists. HMMMMM, I'm pretty sure Jeff produced at least *some* of those. ;-9
ELO has over 65 thousand fans - what does that prove? I seem to remember him getting an award from Rolling Stone magazine for his production talents. He just didn't do his best work as a solo artist, that's all.
