HERE IS THE NEWS [5]

Express & Star: 29th April 2011 ...
Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! I find it quite amazing that there has been so little coverage of the Walk of Stars award granted to Bev Bevan on the night of Thursday 28th April - despite the Royal Wedding and other [so-called] major new stories!


There does [to this writer] indeed appear to be a lack of media coverage in general out there in the ELO universe. Having said that, here is a nice report that appeared in the Friday 29th April edition of Wolverhampton's Express & Star newspaper. Yours Truly KJS has also copied the text of the article for your perusal thus:

Bev ups sticks for fans: Drummer's award marked with show
"Legendary drummer Bev Bevan held an exclusive charity concert to celebrate being honoured on the Broad Street Walk of Stars. The former ELO drummer was presented with the award before the sell-out show at Gatecrasher, Birmingham. Bevan invited good friend and fellow rock legend Tony Iommi to perform with him as well as his childhood chum and comedian extraordinaire Jasper Carrott. Iommi and Carrott have both been awarded with a Broad Street star and Bevan attended their presentation events. Bevan, aged 66, joked: "It is wonderful to be in the club. I did start to wonder when it would be my turn!" The Broad Street Walk of Stars honours those people who  have made a significant contribution in the categories of music, television, film, radio, theatre, sport or literacy."

CAUGHT LIVE: BEV BEVAN'S WALK OF STARS GIG

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! I honestly didn't know what to expect as Yours Truly KJS journeyed by train en route to the Gatecrasher venue on Broad Street in "Down Home Town" Birmingham last night [Thursday 28th April]. We sat out the whole gig nestled in some VIP seating directly to the left of the stage and were greeted on arrival by the dulcet tones of ELO, The Move and ELO Part II being blasted out via the PA! On my right was an 89 year old lady [who told me that she was a pianist who happened to like rock music] and a gentleman named Ray Fullard who told me that Jeff Lynne produced one of his tracks back in 1986. To our left - on stage - just a few away was former ELO Part II front man Neil Lockwood - presently on vocals and keyboards - and just beyond Neil was Man of the Moment Bev Bevan with his now legendary Slingerland drum kit.

Bev was presented with his Broad Street Walk of Stars award in advance of the gig by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Len Gregory. What transpired after that was a momentous concert that featured some of Bev's present musical Move mates in Trevor Burton, Phil Tree, Gordon Healer and Tony Kelsey as well as special guests and local Midlands entertainment icons Danny King, Raymond Froggatt together with [naturally] old pals Jasper Carrott and Tony Iommi.

There were no ELO songs - not even "Roll Over Beethoven" - but that did not detract from a fantastic set of  songs that included "Something Else", "Let There Be Drums", Danny King's wonderful rendition of "Yesterday", a fantastic thrash through "Paranoid" and "Gimme Some Loving" as well as the closing Move anthem "Blackberry Way". It was really ace being seated so very close to one of my musical heroes who played those drums [and percussion] with the mastery and finesse of a consummate professional at ease with his craft, whilst enjoying his legacy.

What also has to be said is that there was an immense amount of musical talent on that stage last night. The stage presence of Trevor Burton, Tony Kelsey's driving guitar work, the phenomenal keyboard wizardry of Neil Lockwood, the surprising quality of Jasper Carrott's vocals - the list goes on. The concert was a fitting tribute to not only Bev Bevan's musical journey but also a treat to the many fans, friends and family who attended whilst raising a fair few pounds for charity. And yes - it was strange that there was little mention or musical acknowledgement to his successful career with Jeff Lynne and ELO - but I for one travelled back to Wolverhampton last night feeling extremely grateful to have been in attendance at Bev's latest 'Big Bash'.

BEV BEVAN TO RECEIVE BIRMINGHAM BROAD STREET STAR

 Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! With a little luck and a fair wind trailing, Yours truly KJS will be attending the Broad Street Walk of Stars event at the Gatecrasher Club in Birmingham on Thursday 28th April for the presentation of the award to ELO and The Move founding member Bev Bevan during his latest gig at this popular second city centre night club venue. The concert will raise funds for the Birmingham Mail Charity Fund. In a recent interview, Bev [66] stated that he was "very honoured and proud to receive this star and to be following in the footsteps of some fantastic talent from Birmingham."

We are promised 'special guests' and I expect those to include Jasper Carrott, Trevor Burton and possibly Tony Iommi. At the time of writing, tickets are still available via this link thus:


Yours Truly KJS and ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] have compiled this quartet of Birmingham Mail articles featuring the event for you to peruse at your leisure thus:

FOR THE [NEW WORLD] RECORD

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Yours Truly KJS has recently updated the summary overview for ELOBF and wanted to provide a brief history for those electric lightened souls who may be interested thus:

"ELO Beatles Forever was originally launched in February 2009 to campaign for the release of the original, full 18-track version of ELO's seminal 1983 album 'Secret Messages' including that long-lost gem 'Beatles Forever'. ELOBF has now expanded in scope to also include news on all things ELO; highlighting those links with its progenitors The Beatles and The Move whilst also reporting on ELO's many incarnations; friends; relatives and interested parties!"

Yours truly decided to launch this blog on Monday 2nd February 2009 because I had a long standing desire to see ELO's 1983 album "Secret Messages" issued in its originally intended double album format. Back in 1983, most us had the the choice to buy either the 10-track LP or 11-track cassette. In the ensuing years; we have seen the release of six [6] of those 'missing' tracks that would have been a part of that deleted double album via the likes of "Afterglow" [1990] and the expanded CD release of "Secret Messages" [2001].

Which leaves us with the only missing piece of the jigsaw in "Beatles Forever" which has yet to see the [official] light of day, so to speak. I have always been fascinated by this song and the very rough recording of it that has been in circulation for years. And that was the original reason for starting up ELOBF - to raise awareness of the track and to [and I use the term lightly] 'campaign' for SonyBMG to release the full "Secret Messages" set. However, very soon after ELOBF was launched, we had the tragic death of Kelly Groucutt occur and thereafter my blog has expanded in scope on many levels for multiple reasons.

ELOBF now also includes the activities of Jeff Lynne, former members and associates of ELO [including ELO Part II, The Orchestra, The Move et al], interviews, CD and DVD reviews, gig reviews and even an internet radio show! ELOBF also tries to showcase local, national and international bands who dip their toes into the ELO and Beatles universe. Hence, having the blog name: ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] also serves to highlight and promote the very strong personal [and musical] relationship that exist between ELO and The Beatles - whilst also seeking the completion of the "Secret Messages" story.

I do not know if ELO maestro Jeff Lynne is even aware of ELOBF - the blog. But I do know this. If he and/or SonyBMG do decide one day to present us with the full "Secret Messages" release, I will be over the moon and extremely happy. But if we therefore never see "Beatles Forever" officially unveiled to the world, I will be ultimately disappointed but not downhearted because ELOBF is so much more here in 2011 than when it began, over 50,000 visits ago. And for that I am thankful to any and all visitors to ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] - because I honestly never expected such growth and diversification. To you: My West Bishes and many thanx.

BETWEEN GOOD FRIENDS: RAISING FUNDS FOR BUTTERWICK HOSPICE

All for a great cause: Butterwick Hospice ...
Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Relative to my previous ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] blog entitled TELSTAR TWIST, Yours Truly KJS has been chatting to the aforementioned Andy Wood [a.k.a. the multi-talented Fruity Buckfoot] about a certain unofficial DVD. During that discussion, the conversation turned to the fund raising that Andy is doing for the Butterwick Hospice up in Bishop Auckland, Durham. Andy's son suffers from Asperger Syndrome himself and also does voluntary work for this well-deserving and much needed charity.
The CD features Mel Gale, Steve Midgley and Tina McBain ...
Andy has compiled, recorded and released an eleven [11] track CD entitled "Between Good Friends" via his musical persona Fruity Buckfoot. The CD features Mel Gale of ELO fame and Tina McBain from The Beatles Blues and Blue Violin Project [BBBV] as well as many other fine musicians. May I encourage you to grab a copy? There are now only 40 copies left so time is short if you want to get a hold of an ELO related rarity that also raises awareness and funds for a good cause. You can obtain a copy by sending a cheque payable to Butterwick Hospice for just £4.50 [inc. P+P] to: Andy Wood, 23 Eden Close, Coundon, Bishop Auckland, Durham, DL14 8LB, England

TELSTAR TWIST

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! My good fiend Andy 'Fruity Buckfoot' Wood posted a photograph [above left] during a discussion about those marvellous gigs by the Electric Light Orchestra Part Two and the Moscow Symphony Orchestra during May and June 1991. I still fondly recall excitedly driving up to the NEC in Birmingham on Tuesday 28th May from Weston-super-Mare to see the music of ELO performed live for the very first time. Sadly, Yours Truly KJS never got to see the classic ELO line-up perform live.

I also remember seeing the highlights of the gig on TV and buying the video as released by Telstar Video Entertainment [#TVE1037] at that time. One year later, I managed to obtain the Scotti Brothers US CD release "Performing ELO's Greatest Hits Live" and was much impressed. Since then we have seen ELO Part II run its course and Bev Bevan leave the ELO arena [so to speak] as well as the rise of The Orchestra [former members of ELO & ELO Part II].

But one thing we have not seen is any kind of official re-release on DVD of this astounding, once-in-a-lifetime concert. Andy Wood found the above pictured disc in a second hand record shop in Rennes, France a few years ago. It has no serial number and is evidently a very professional looking bootleg drawn from those VHS recordings - now 20 years old! But do you not agree that this concert would be an attractive DVD release? It's a tantalizing glimpse of what might be if an official release did come along. We know that Telstar are no more and that the original video footage [as shot by the legendary Mike Mansfield] and audio soundtrack were copyrighted to Rockview Promotions back in 1991. But the questions now must be:

[a] Who currently owns the rights to this ELO/MSO concert material?
[b] Do any visitors to ELOBF know who owns said audio and visual recordings?
[c] Have any ELOBF visitors come across any other 'unofficial' DVD releases?

To this writer, this is almost as fascinating as the enigma that is "Beatles Forever"- that long lost ELO gem from their 1983 originally-intended double album "Secret Messages" - and the only track that [to date] has not been released. This was the original reason that I started ELOBF back on [Groundhog Day] Monday 2nd February 2009 [although the scope of ELOBF has now morphed significantly] and it seems quite natural to recall that day as we approach the landmark of 50,000 visitors to ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF]! I am truly thankful to you guys for each and every visit and long may it continue!

My good friend Christian Evans recently emailed Lynn Hoskins, admin for ELO-Showdown [an internet mailing list for ELO and related artists] and Useless Information [an internet mailing list for The Move and Roy Wood] via Face The Music, a long established fanzine.

Chris asked: "Do you have any news on the much rumoured new Jeff Lynne album, re-mastered 'Armchair Theatre'; 'Zoom' live album etc? I appreciate that you may not be able to say too much but could you confirm that 'the fans' will have something to get excited about soon?"

Lynn answered: "Jeff has not finished in the studio. Boy, he's slow! :) Jeff himself recently said his album would be out "... soon ..." Not sure what his definition is! I guess we wait some more!" 

FYI: There are two mailing list formats for both ELO-Showdown and Useless Information.

CAUGHT LIVE [3]: BEATLES BLUES & BLUE VIOLIN PROJECT

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! My third Beatles Blues & Blue Violin Project [BBBV] gig at The Robin 2 in Bilston last night [Sunday 11th April] was a delight in more ways than one. Yours Truly KJS thought that there might be little to add after attending and reviewing the BBBV concert in Shrewsbury last Thursday [7th April] but felt this morning it most important to remind folks in the ELO and Beatles universe of what they are missing if they somehow do not catch the BBBV tour - either this Spring or during Phase II of their tour later  this year in September.

BBBV were ably assisted on the night "with a little help from their friends" Fay & Latta and Groucutt & Haynes. The highlight of the Fay & Latta set for me was their beautiful song "Uninvited". Groucutt & Haynes also delivered a hugely impressive selection of songs highlighted by their class song "Rain".

CAUGHT LIVE [2]: BEATLES BLUES & BLUE VIOLIN PROJECT

And what more can I say of BBBV? Only that they improve performance after performance and that it is a real pleasure to again witness the craft of ELO violinist Mik Kaminski in a variety of musical styles and improvisations that one can clearly see him enjoying. Phil Bates' top notch guitar work effortlessly intertwined with Tina McBain's sublime vocals, particularly on tracks like "Motherless Children""While My Guitar Gently Weeps""Why Worry" and "Midnight Blue" here in the home territory of  the late great Kelly Groucutt. In summary, another great night of ELO and Beatles fused music, this time hosted by our friends at The Robin 2It was also nice to spend a little time with fellow fans and some of my musical heroes. We really should support in numbers these talented musicians as they ply their trade and bring us the live music of The Beatles and the Blues with a certain blue violin!

ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends The Beatles Blues and Blue Violin Project [BBBV] to those enlightened folks who also like ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, 'Brum Beat', The Idle Race, The Move, The Beatles and related artistes.

CAUGHT LIVE [2]: BEATLES BLUES & BLUE VIOLIN PROJECT

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! ELOBF appears to be in the middle of a gig glut in March and April this year and one of the absolute pleasures of attending and drinking in live music in the ELO and related musical universe is witnessing a concert such as that performed by The Beatles Blues and Blue Violin Project [BBBV] on the night of Thursday 7th April at The Walker Theatre, a venue located within Theatre Severn beside the beautiful River Severn in the enigmatic county town of Shrewsbury.

Travelling the thirty [30] odd miles to see this group of mature, talented and professional musicians of proven ELO pedigree deliver a set of songs largely written by The Beatles and Jeff Lynne in that unique BBBV style really is a perfect fit for ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] - and not necessarily in name only. Phil Bates, Mik Kaminski and Tina McBain [a.k.a. Tina Mac] duly delivered another entertaining set of "folksy, bluesy" interpretations, mostly of Beatles and ELO tracks. This is the fourth time that I've seen BBBV now and I have to say that this trio have become tighter and have matured much as a unit. Songs like "Norwegian Wood", "I Am The Walrus", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Why Worry?" and "Motherless Children" were intermingled effortlessly with their twin tributes to the late, great Kelly Groucutt in "Can't Get It Out Of My Head" and "Midnight Blue".

See also: CAUGHT LIVE: BEATLES BLUES & BLUE VIOLIN PROJECT

It is so very natural to see the way that Beatles classics are stripped down and performed next to those Jeff Lynne penned masterpieces that we all know and love. The quartet of ELO songs were completed by "Evil Woman" and "Rock 'n' Roll Is King". Yours Truly KJS will be over at The Robin 2 again tomorrow night [Sunday 10th April] to savour another BBBV concert with "a little help from their Friends" Groucutt & Haynes and Fay & Latta.

CAUGHT LIVE [2]: ELECTRIC LIVE ORCHESTRA

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! Yours Truly KJS travelled over to Hednesford on the edge of Cannock Chase last night [Saturday 2nd April] in order to join the audience for a gig by The Electric Live Orchestra hosted by The Tackeroo venue.

Yours truly nestled into a stool and then had the great pleasure of seeing a band who truly enjoyed themselves and relished the songs they played in tribute to the mighty ELO and Jeff Lynne [plus one song by Chuck Berry!]. Whereas it must be said that that other great ELO tribute band The ELO Experience manage to reproduce the complex orchestrations and arrangements of ELO both accurately and superbly; The Electric Live Orchestra [who are now a five-piece] capture the guitar driven rock and verve of ELO in their own unique style. Both bands are a credit to themselves and the ELO fan base.

Last nights concert was a guitar driven musical interpretation of the majority of the ELO back catalogue from "10538 Overture" to "Rock 'n' Roll Is King". I thought that all of the songs were played superbly from the rocky "Xanadu" to "Rockaria" to "Do Ya" to "Ma Ma Ma Belle". Alas there was no "Nightrider" but the whole set was superb and well worth hearing again!

The Electric Live Orchestra are: Dave Bates [Bass Guitar; Vocals]; John Will [Lead Rhythm Synth Guitar; Vocals]; Gary Mitchell [Lead Rhythm Synth Guitar; Vocals]; Mel Thompson [Drums] and Bernie Toner [Keyboards]. I touched base with their new keyboard maestro Bernie Toner and their 'power' drummer Mel Thompson during the evening and will [hopefully!] be interviewing the band for ELOBF in the near future; so watch this space!

FAVE ELO SONGS: OWEN PAUL

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! This is #1 in a new series of ELOBF special posts. Do you remember Owen Paul? He had a #3 hit in the Summer of 1986 with his perennial classic 'feel good' song "My Favourite Waste Of Time". Yours Truly KJS recently had some dialogue with Owen over on Facebook where I asked him what his fave ELO track was. Owen was very obliging and here is his answer for you to peruse thus:

"My brother Brian was an ELO fanatic, and it was all we used to hear coming out of his bedroom throughout my school days. My favourite song of theirs is 'Showdown' from their album 'On The Third Day' ..."

ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] recommends Owen Paul to those enlightened folks who enjoy the music of ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, The Move, The Idle Race, 'Brum Beat', The Beatles and related artistes.
