The concerts were spectacular, literally. Dudes sawing away on 'cellos, Mik Kaminsky doing the Paganini thing, the eponymous electric lights. And opening bands? I've said it before, but imagine: Little Feat, Widowmaker, Steve Hillage.

I sort of remember ELO as a pop prog theatrical thing, closer to Queen than Genesis. Never liked it much.

ELO, in the Roy Wood days, were actually poking fun at both pop and classical. They got more serious when Wood left and Lynne took over.

ELO had its roots in The Move, right? The Move is probably most famous for being DJ Terre T's opening theme song about the cherry blossom clinic.

Ken, maybe try some memory games like Lumosity and Elevate have. They can be helpful. if it's becoming a problem, I think I would get it checked out.
