Happy Birthday Jeff Lynne
ELO(Electric Light Orchestra) mainman Jeff Lynne turns 66 today. I personally have been an ELO fan ever since I was a small child going through my dad’s record collection and pulling out ELO’s Out of the Blue album. I’ll never forget seeing this double album as a kid that folded out to show the interior of a giant UFO. I thought it was so cool! And after hearing songs like “Turn to Stone”, “Sweet Talkin’ Woman”, and “Mr. Blue Sky”, I was hooked! The music of ELO was definitely a memory from my childhood that I fondly remember. Of course Jeff Lynne would also go on to a be part of another great group, the supergroup The Traveling Wilburys with Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, and Tom Petty.
