in the early '80s, I absolutely wore out my ears listening to Dire Straights (just like ELO in late '70s) then in the early '90s - a favorite distraction was Matthew Sweet, especially his Girlfriend album
This made me smile a whole lot today, not to mention indulge in some spontaneous headbanging. This Muse song is celebrating the 20th anniversry of its first live performance and the brilliant French fan site has put together a montage of it being played across the years. It was the first song of theirs I ever heard and by the time the bass came in after the piano intro I was well and truly hooked. Some epic gigs here, many of which I was lucky enough to attend. For me ninja twin BSJ there's lots of footage of Chris the bassist, sporting some interesting hairdos (and hair don'ts) but always looking divine. Sadly it's now relegated to a disappointing "Metal Medley" live, but we the hardcore fans are hoping that's only a blip and it will return in full next tour.

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::

BSJ: Circlejerk is waaaaaay out there!

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?
