Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne & ELO
As the creative force behind Electric Light Orchestra and a singularly accomplished singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer, Jeff Lynne is one of rock’s most iconic—yet mysterious—figures. Please join us as we help celebrate his return to make some new waves and shed a little electric light with a screening of Lynne’s illuminating and entertaining documentary, Mr. Blue Sky: The Story of Jeff Lynne and ELO, written and directed by Martyn Atkins. Not just your standard “rock doc,” it’s also a mystery movie that, once and for all, explains: who is this man, Jeff Lynne, and how has he had such a tremendous musical influence on our world? The answer—as told by Lynne 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.
