When you choose you career at 17 you think you will be fighting for justice. Then you realize you are working as the guy who knows how to deal with bureaucracy. Not what I expected, definitely, and not what I like. I'm not too old to correct my mistake.
The best therapy for any problem you might have is playing music with friends.

Last night, completely unexpectedly, I heard '10538 Overture' on Radio 3! Not the whole song, just a clip used as an illustration in this programme www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b04xrq9n . The illustration was sadly not of ELO but of American Hustle. Either was it was very nice to hear it on R3 for a change.
I predict it's only a matter of time before Chris Evans has Mik on at least his radio show, probably on telly too. It could be that more people recognise him than recognise Jeff, the public are odd like that.
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny

I can believe that, that more people will recognise Mik than recognise Jeff. "Hey that's the 'Clog Dance' bloke, don't know who the guy in shades is". Mik better watch out or Evans will be pushing for a Jeff/Mik reunion seeing as a Bev/Jeff reunion isn't on the cards.
Mr Blue Sky was used a number of times on Waterloo Road tonight on the BBC. The ELO version was used for a good few minutes at the start and then towards the end a version by a female singer (Lilly Allen?) was used.
Thanks to my teenage daughter for this spotting
Yes that was Lily Allen. A b side or something which didn't make it on an album. Quite a refreshing cover I think!
I got a vague recollection that I remember seeing a clip a few years back where Harry Hill mentioned Jeff Lynne in his voice over it was probably the same one. It's not actually Jeff just a lookalike with a beard and shades.

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?
