Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne and ELO Coming To TV

10/03/2012
.
The new documentary "Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne and ELO," is set to debut on HD TV.

The film will be premiere on MTV's high def channel Palladia on Sunday, October 7 at 9:00 PM ET and will be airing throughout the month, as well as VH1 Classic starting Wednesday, October 10.

Here is the synopsis of the documentary: Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne and ELO gets to the heart of who Jeff Lynne is and how he has had such a tremendous musical influence on our world. The answer--as told by the British artist himself and such distinguished collaborators and friends of JEFF as Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Tom Petty, Joe Walsh, Olivia and Dhani Harrison, Barbara Orbison and Eric Idle--is that LYNNE is a true man of music for whom the recording studio is his greatest instrument. Lynne recently made a rare appearance at The Grammy Museum in downtown Los Angeles (9/12) at the film's premiere screening. Lynne's friends on hand included Tom Petty and guitarist Mike Campbell, Joe Walsh, Olivia Harrison, musician Gary Wright and drummer Jim Keltner.

The broadcast precedes the release of two albums by Lynne: the solo disc Long Wave, a tribute to some of the very songs that originally inspired Lynne, and Mr. Blue Sky–The Very Best Of Electric Light Orchestra.

For the latter album, Lynne has revisited and created brand new versions--at his home studio in Los Angeles--of the greatest hits of ELO.
