A Christmas Wish from Jeff Lynne - ELO, Traveling Wilburys, Producer & Great Guy!

L-R: Bob, Jeff, Tom, Nelson & Roy

If you are a fan of Rock And Roll, then you know who Jeff Lynne is. If not, here is a one sentence review: He founded Electric Light Orchestra; has produced great music for The Beatles ("Free As A Bird", "Real Love") Roy Orbison, George Harrison and Dave Edmunds to name a few; and is a founding member of the best and only Supergroup that never broke up, The Traveling Wilburys...

ELO

At this time of year, I think it is a good idea to reflect on the real meaning of Christmas. I think Jeff Lynne's wish for the world (taken from Facebook) sums it up perfectly...

L-R: George, Jeff, Paul & Ringo
 
From: Jeff Lynne
"Every Christmas you always hear people saying what they want and bought. Well this is what I want, I want poeple who are sick with no cure to be able to be cured. I want children with no families, to be adopted, I want people to never have to worry about food and shelter & heat. Now, lets see how many people re-post this who actually... care, I have a feeling I am gonna see almost no re-posts."

Now that is a sentiment all of us can get behind. Let's all try to live our lives in spirit of Jeff's message. Not just at Christmas time, but year-round. Happy Holidays!
