What an amazing keyboard player from an equally amazing band.... I hope that you listen to lots more ELO other than their greatest hits as there is a mountain of great music to get through.

I've been an ELO fan since I was about 13 (and that's a long time ago!!!!) ... ELO helped me achieve two things: 1. learn to play keyboards like Richard Tandy and 2. grow a mo and beard like Jeff Lynne ... I'm touching 50 and my hands are sore with arthritis on some days and my beard/mo have turned grey but ELO still sound fantastic.

Bitexion - the Time album was a concept album about the future and marked a big shift in their sound ... I didnt really like it all that much and really missed those big strings though 'Rain Is Falling' is a beautiful song... my favourite era was from Face The Music (1975) to Discovery (1979)... but no matter which album you listen to, there's always great keyboard parts - great because of the playing and the sound itself.

I think Richard Tandy is a very clever and talented guy who for better or worse, has flown under the radar for too long.

my 2c :-)
