Mick Lowe So who do you love? (107* d) RE: So who do you love? 18 Dec 99


Mbo
First off you've got to "come clean".. it's my quest if you like for the new millenium.. i.e. get everyone out of the protective shields and declare themselves on the internet, if not elsewhere..
I'm Mick Lowe and want everyone on the mudcat/web to know it..
As for ELO I admire all you say about them, especially Jeff Lynne. I must admit my view of them is slightly different as I have traced the career of Roy Wood from the Move.. through Wizzard and into the ELO and having seen Roy Wood several times in whatever guise, have always been struck with the impression that he has sought out the world of music as a profession rather than through love.. I can't help get the feeling that the output of whatever group he has been involved with, is more contrived to make money rather than being an artistic stand.
That's not in any way an attempt to ignore any "& advances/ground breaking/etc.. that Roy Woods has done in the world of pop music.. I think Wizzard were the first group to use cellos.. no doubt I'll be corrected if wrong.
Although I wouldn't place ELO at the top of my list of groups who have a profound influence on the way my personal musical career has progressed, I some how take great delight that they have in influencing yours Mbo
If it were not so quite late here on my side of the pond I'd expound further on other groups who have the "classical" feel as to their music
If you fancy a chin wag, drop me a line at mick@prof.co.uk
