Electric Light Orchestra Bio/Wiki, Net Worth, Married 2018

Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) were a British rock group from Birmingham, England, who released eleven studio albums between 1971 and 1986 and another album in 2001. ELO was formed to accommodate Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne's desire to create modern rock and pop songs with classical overtones. After Wood's departure following the band's debut record, Lynne wrote and arranged all of the group's original compositions and produced every album.Despite early singles success in the United Kingdom, the band was initially more successful in the United States, billed as "The English guys with the big fiddles". They gained a cult following despite lukewarm reviews back in their native United Kingdom. By the mid-1970s, they had become one of the biggest-selling acts in music. From 1972 to 1986, ELO accumulated 27 Top-40 hit singles in both the UK and the US, with 20 Top 20 UK singles and 15 Top-20 US singles (as charted by Billboard magazine). The band also holds the record for having the most Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hits, 20, of any group in US chart history without ever having a number one single.ELO collected 19 CRIA, 21 RIAA and 38 BPI awards, and sold over 50 million records worldwide during the group's original 13 year period of active recording and touring.

2The band holds the record for having the most Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 without having had a #1 hit.
3Their hit single "Don't Bring Me Down" was their first song to not feature a string section.
4Original bass guitarist Mike D'Albuquerque left after the band's third album, "On The Third Day"; he was credited as bassist on their next album ("Eldorado"), but the bass parts were mostly played by Jeff Lynne. Kelly Groucutt joined the band in time for their next album, 1975's "Face The Music".
5Thanks to contact microphones and early wireless miking systems, the band's string players were able to move around onstage as they played, resulting in an unusual, lively stage act.
61974's "Eldorado" album was the first time a full orchestra was used in ELO's recording sessions. The British classical players were used to keeping to a time clock and other protocols, and showed little interest in the music. The "Eldorado" session itself ran overlong, and musicians actually began packing up and walking out, thinning out the sound of the finale. Complaints about an alleged backward-masked Satanic/Anti-Christian message in the song also arose, from the American Bible belt. Before starting ELO's next album, Jeff Lynne accepted an invitation to record at Musicland Studios in Munich, and found the German session players much more receptive and dedicated. The backwards-message accusations he dismissed as "skcollob".
7Band member Mike Edwards died on September 3, 2010, in a vehicle accident; he was driving his van on a country road when a 600-kg hay bale rolled down a hill, hit his car and crushed it, killing him instantly.
8Several members regrouped without Jeff Lynne after the final ELO album ("Balance of Power") in 1986, first forming OrKestra (with an appearance in Summer Job (1989)), then "ELO Part II". Lynne re-acquired the ELO name, with a new album and planned tour in 2001, but the album was not a hit, and most of the tour dates were canceled.
9Did not work together often as a group. Jeff Lynne wrote the songs, called his bandmates together when he was ready to record, and did post-production (mixing and editing) without them. The next time they usually heard the songs was when the finished records began to appear on radio. They would then reassemble to rehearse, before going out on tour.
10Members have included Roy Wood, Jeff Lynne, Bev Bevan, Steve Woolam, Kelly Groucutt, Mik Kaminski, Richard Tandy, Hugh McDowell, Andy Craig, Wilf Gibson, Mike D'Albuquerque, Mike Edwards, Colin Walker
