GEORGE @ 70: ALL THOSE YEARS AGO [David Myhr]

Hello ... Hello ... my old friends ... It's great to see you once again! ELO Beatles Forever [ELOBF] has long been an admirer of Swedish singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist David Myhr.

His excellent album "Soundshine" was a musical highlight last year and David's live performance in hometown PiteĆ„ [click here to view] has also been featured as was his Abbey Road take on "Never Mine" and his fantastic cover of the 10cc classic "The Things We Do For Love" for the much anticipated Drink A Toast To Innocence: A Tribute To Lite Rock project. David has now released a video of his tribute to George Harrison [and by extension John Lennon] - an acoustic cover of "All Those Years Ago" - on what would have been George's 70th birthday earlier this week thus:

And the really good news is that David is playing a rare UK acoustic gig on Tuesday 21st May in central London at The Betsy Trotwood, ably supported by Mick Terry. Yours Truly KJS hopes to travel down from the Midlands for this attractive gig. Tickets are priced at just £7.50 each - and you can purchase them here. See you there?

ELO Beatles Forever recommends David Myhr to those enlightened folks who also like ELO, Jeff Lynne, Roy Wood, 'Brum Beat', The Idle Race, The Move, The Beatles and related artistes.

Until next "Time" in the ELO [and related] Universe ... KJS ... 27-Feb-2013
