From out of the blue comes word that Jeff Lynne will bring his latest version of the Electric Light Orchestra to the Grammy Awards on Sunday, likely setting a new world record for number of viewers the band has ever played for on live television.
I have few childhood memories as fond as listening to ELO's 'Discovery' album through giant headphones on my parents' console record player. This album played a huge part in making me the music junkie that I am today. In celebration of Electric Light Orchestra's mind-shaping talents, I've compiled all their best official music videos for all to enjoy!
Jeff Lynne and ELO are beginning 2013 in the same way they ended 2012, with three new CDs. On April 23, Frontiers Records will release a live album from Electric Light Orchestra, a reissue of one of the band's more recent albums and a reissue of Lynne's debut solo album.
Court proceedings have concluded surrounding the exceedingly bizarre death of former Electric Light Orchestra cellist Mike Edwards, with a pair of English farmers cleared of negligence in the events leading up to the tragedy.
Electric Light Orchestra singer Jeff Lynne has been busy over the past year, re-recording past favorites for the 'Mr. Blue Sky' album as well as taking on a number of older standards for the companion disc, 'Long Wave.' Despite the wealth of new music, it's likely that Lynne will not be touring.
