Jeff Lynne is the leading man the '70s rock band Electric Light Orchestra, otherwise known as ELO for short. Back in 1976, Lynne thought that ELO might have been done for good at that point. However, two more revivals would occur, one of them taking place right now. After selling out arenas all over the globe, it is evident that generations of old and young have come together to appreciate the creative masterpiece that is ELO.\r\n\r\n\u201cI was worried that there weren\u2019t enough people who knew about us,\u201d says back in a 2014 interview when they have revived ELO again. ELO was to headline an all-day festival at London\u2019s Hyde Park. \u201cWe took a big chance. The crowd could\u2019ve gone home any time, they didn\u2019t have to wait around for us at the end. But it was still full. I remember looking through a little gap in the curtain and going: \u2018They\u2019re still here!\u2019\u201d\r\nJeff Lynne of ELO delves into the success and incredible impact of "Mr. Blue Sky"\r\n\r\n\r\nFast forward to the year 2020, Lynne has recently sat down for another interview with Louder Sound to discuss the highlights of his incredible rock career. On top of his success with ELO, he has gone on to co-founded supergroup the Traveling Wilburys and produce many A-listers, including the three remaining Beatles members.\r\n\r\nRELATED: 13 Regular Music Groups Are No Match for These Supergroups\r\n\r\nMany have their ELO favorites without a doubt, but one of the biggest hits from the band was the song "Mr. Blue Sky." In the interview, they mention that the song has become Birmingham FC\u2019s unofficial anthem, and it\u2019s been used as a wake-up call to astronauts on NASA missions. The interviewer wonders which of those two Lynne is most proud of. He responds, "[Laughing] Being a Blues fan, it\u2019s got to be Birmingham. I\u2019m just kidding. Obviously the idea that it\u2019s been used to wake up spacemen is amazing, just the fact that someone sent my tune up there."\r\nHis incredible career branches out to different avenues in the music industry\r\n\r\n\r\nLynne was then asked if the extensive reach of "Mr. Blue Sky" 'blows his mind' sometimes. He then responds, "It makes me feel good about the music I\u2019ve made. I didn\u2019t ever get a proper job, I just carried on doing this. My mum hated me doing music. She\u2019d go: \u201cYou don\u2019t want to do that all rubbish. There\u2019s a job going at ATV for a cameraman.\u201d I\u2019d already had about three hits by that point!"\r\n\r\nIt's obvious that "Mr. Blue Sky" has had quite a reach that Lynne was not prepared for in comparison to other ELO hits. As previously mentioned, ELO wrapped up back in '86 and Lynne reveals exactly why that happened. "I just wanted to start producing other people," he reveals. "I started with George [Harrison], then I ended up producing Paul [McCartney] and after that the two Anthology Beatles tracks, which were John\u2019s two singles."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nJeff Lynne has certainly had quite the career, making a name for himself and branching out into other aspects of the industry. Take a look at the video below for a recent performance of "Mr. Blue Sky" by ELO. He still sounds fantastic!
