In a ‘hey you got your rock in my classical/no you got your classical in my rock’ way, dad and I always found common ground with ELO and this LP in particular when it was new…blasting ‘Mr. Blue Sky’ on the car radio, tooling around the town while coming up with weirder and funnier band names than Electric Light Orchestra.”
DCist reports that the Eels frontman invited President Bush to its show.
