Kudos to whoever was in charge of the playlist where I went out to lunch today - if Tom Petty "Wildflowers" wasn't enough to put a smile on my face, I heard the Wilburys "End of the Line" a few songs later!
Dave watched an old Jeopardy a few days ago where they wanted the contestants to guess the song from a few lyrics. So proud of him knowing "Sweet Talkin Woman" while the players just shrugged their shoulders.
Nothing beats buying records in an actual record shop, buying on line is fine but nothing beats getting a find while flicking through the shelves. If the guy that owns the shop is an ELO fan even better. Good to see people supporting their local vinyl store.
I'm reading Elton John's autobiography, "Me", at the moment. In the early chapters, when Elton recalls his time touring the UK with the band Bluesology, he reveals how impressed he was by a certain band from Birmingham:
Later on, Elton describes his audition for London record label Liberty Records:
She's well, if a bit stressed about getting ready to ship off to college and other things going on lately. Been giving more attention to her interests other than ELO for a while, but I'm listening to Zoom as I type, which she put on--I'm sure it's just a matter of time before she comes around again.

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.
