Great that you got the chance to see the Wilburys, Vlog! Was the experience for you as great as it was for Queen? Was the set of songs the same?
Now, if that photo ever reached the hands of a certain other ELO member, we could have a scandal arising.
Heh, no danger of a scandal, Helmut83 - in fact, I took the opportunity to speak up for that very ELO member.
As I approached the band's signing table, "Roy" said "You were in the front row, weren't you?" (The power of the white fur jacket...) I said yes, and asked "Jeff" if I could take a picture of my new friend Shuv with him. "Jeff" said yes straight away. While I was reaching for my phone, I mentioned to "Jeff" that I'd met one of ELO in real life. He asked, "Oh, who was that, then?" So I told him. And then blurted out: "HOW could you give him the sack? - a lovely man like that!" "Jeff" looked a bit taken aback at this, but "George" and "Roy", who were standing nearby, both had a chuckle. "Jeff" couldn't have been too cross, though, because he invited me to join him and Shuv for a picture. And "George" took the picture! In fact, he took quite a few.
(And yes, the show was great, very similar to the experience queenofthehours described. Wolfie and elophile would have enjoyed "Bob"'s leather trousers. Although I would have awarded "Tom" the prize for trousering, that night. And I was in the front row...)
elophile: OH, Yes! Will you take a little sip when no one is looking?

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?
