Him and his ELO. They’ve got a “new” release and it keeps getting played on the radio, sounding like the old elo tracks but more of a dirge. It sounds like the neighbours are drilling
into their walls. Is he really charismatic when he meets the people who come up with the playlists?!

I like their old stuff.

And Mr Blue Sky is probably the best song of all time on Beat Saber.

I've not heard anything new though*. What's a 'radio'?

* By anyone, never mind by ELO.

I didn’t know he had a middle name!

And it’s Lynne.

Apart from that you’re spot on.

My Brother is a big fan of ELO/Jeff Lynne.

Its ok but I have heard it all so much that I am sick of hearing it.

His new song is much better than most of the s***e that is played on mainstream radio these days.

I don’t think I’d ever make that comparison.

Oasis = Beatles Lite I would very much agree.

Muse = Queen lite, definitely.

But isn’t a lot of music ***** = Lite.

The Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) are an English rock band formed in Birmingham in 1970 by songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood with drummer Bev Bevan. Their music is characterised by a fusion of Beatlesque pop, classical arrangements and futuristic iconography.
Past members: Roy Wood; Bev Bevan; See members section for others
According to Wikipedia.

Did Jeff buy the right to be ELO or does he claim to be more significant so it’s his?

Again, I don’t think I’d ever make that comparison, and I am the music man.
