Happy Birthday to ELO's Jeff Lynne

Today (12/30), we wish Happy Birthday to ELO's Jeff Lynne. In addition to his great work with Electric Light Orchestra, Lynne is an accomplisehd and sought after producer.   ELO will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2017. We're hoping the induction leads to a full Jeff Lynne tour or an ELO reunion. If that does happen, it will probably sound something like this.

Lynne's producer credits include work with:  Tom Petty (multilple albms), Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr, Brian Wilson, Traveling Wilburys, Roy Orbison, Duane Eddy, Dave Edmunds, Joe Walsh.
