Belief is such a sad song, but here's Parthenon singing about love in a really upbeat way. Like Jeff, Hux can write songs infused with a wide range of emotions. I also like the way each verse in this one shows a changing perspective.
Hux spent lavishly to promote his last album (100% sarcasm). He enlisted his neighbor to make this ad and his self-deprecating sense of humor comes through LOUD and Clear. Simultaneously a Prima Donna and a bit insecure about his place in the rock echelons.
When Rick turned 30, he changed his name to Parthenon Huxley - to show his love of Greece where he lived as a teen and Aldous Huxley - his fav author. I wonder if he’s regretted the move - like a bad tattoo. But it’s one of the most memorable names in Rock, which is what he must have been aiming for.
going way back for this one - it's shows up as the closing track "Don't Worry" to his 1988 album, Sunny Nights but 1st, Hux did this with his college band The Blazers - this recording is from 1980 and the song may go back even a little earlier song title was a little longer then "Don't Worry About It"
Parthenon's Facebook page has some nice musical treats
follow the link and you can listen to him working on Turn to Stone with a young violinist - "Mik" for the next generation? nice to think that Jeff's songs have such staying power that musicians still want to learn how to play them
the violinist is Ben Hoyt and he went to Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore

Grroosss: Well. I discovered r/ELOcirclejerk and the ELO Discord yesterday. Lots to offer (and fans my age!) but too much chaos to take in all at once... Feels good to be back home ::animated-smileys-hug-008::

Helmut83: Is there an ELO Discord? Good data, Grroosss! Gotta check it out, I've been a regular at discord since about two months ago when quarentine boredom drove me there.

Helmut83: I couldn't find it though. Maybe you got mixed up with Reddit?
