As a purest I would dearly love to see Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood and Bev Bevan reunited as a tribute to music they have produced over the past 45 years spannig early Brum Bands to today’s technology! Jeff has remained in the lime light through film scores, Travelling Wilburys and remastering old Beatles tunes Besides the legacy of all his ELO compositions!
Roy Wood, who along with Jeff has also been accredited with an Honoury Doctorate in music, Walk of a Star in Birmingham, a number of Ivor Novello awards for their contributing to composing pop music , though unlike Jeff Roy remains popular in spite of not having an original compsition in the charts since 1975 ( ‘Oh What a Shame’, ironically was it’s title) So that God for the Christmas one!!
Bev Bevan on the other hand may have to bury a few hatchets before Roy does for his The Move 2 and Jeff for ELO pt.2 preferably not in Bev’s head!
Thanks to Martin for the lone of his pics! See Martin*below
I am of the belief that had Roy Wood remained with Jeff in ELO the group would have gone on to be the Beatles of the 70’s with Jeff’s almost McCartney like perfection in production and melodies whilst Roy offered quirky lyrics and unexpected instrumental rifts that fitted quite nicely thank you; Davey
