Iain serenaded us with today on Zoom. He went longer than half an hour. The Zoom session didn't cut off at forty minutes, so he played and visited for fifty minutes. So generous.
I can't say enough about what a pleasant, friendly man he is. He talked about the experience of touring with Jeff Lynne's ELO and what an honor he feels it is. He mentioned his work with 10CC and ARW Yes.
I didn't realize he was the vocal arranger for JL's ELO. What a phenomenal job he does. And what a wonderful voice Iain has.
He talked about writing and recording his latest album Fly Away Home, which I played for the first time yesterday. The album was recorded remotely with one of the keyboardists for JL's ELO, Jo Webb. Both Iain and Jo produced the album. I'm very impressed with the sound quality of the CD and the quality of the songs. Both of them are fantastic musicians, but they'd have to be to get into Jeff's band.
With dollars to pounds conversion rate, I paid $134. Less than a good seat at a concert. And we got up close and person time with a top-notch artist who plays with Jeff Lynne. Myself and five friends attended on Zoom.
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
