Quote of the Day (ELO’s Jeff Lynne, on the ‘70s, ‘A Time of Overdoing Everything’)

“The early 1970s was a time of overdoing everything. Everybody had like 10 or 15-minute songs. It wasn’t a period I liked but I had to join in and have a go so that I didn’t seem odd. And everyone sat through it, they’d sit through these enormous long pieces, poor things.”— ELO frontman Jeff Lynne quoted in Ludovic Hunter-Tilney, “Lone Star,” The Financial Times, Oct. 31-Nov. 1, 2015
