Look At Me Now: The Electric Light Orchestra

Harry Doherty, Melody Maker, 2 April 1977

ELO: MORE than a classical gas. "It’s not classical rock. It never has been, but when it started, it needed a name. It had to be put into a bag. I just call it music." The Electric Light Orchestra /classical rock: the two have gone hand-in-hand since the day ELO was but a figment of Jeff Lynne and Roy Wood’s imaginations. Now, with the band well-established across the world, and Wood long gone, Lynne feels the time has come to distinguish between the two.
