This is such a marvellous article and so spot on! ELO certainly were on “majestic form”. A great description of Jeff: “one of the world's loveliest men” (this is probably true). He did indeed appear “genuinely humbled and amazed by the rapturous reception”.
I especially liked how the article paid tribute to Jeff’s roots (“This is the first one we ever 'ad an 'it with...", he announces, still West-Midlands-as-anything despite decades in Hampstead and Hollywood.”) and how, with his “slightly OCD tendencies”, he improved 'Steppin' Out': “"This is a song I never got right", he explains. "It's better now..."”. It’s as if Jeff is speaking about a poorly friend who he has just nursed back to health.

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
