Rock Family Trees

I got in last night after watching an excellent Eagles tribute band - "Talon" at Theatre Severn Shrewsbury and turning on the television came across what turned out to be an excellent programme Rock Family Trees.

The programme on BBC 4  presented by Music journalist Pete Frame looked at how a number of Midlands groups - Moody Blues, Idle Race, The Move, ELO, Wizzard evolved from other groups and the dramas behind them.

Among those that were interviewed were - Bev Bevan, Roy Wood, Trevor Burton, Denny Laine, Justin Haywood, and Jeff Lynne.

Such a shame I missed the first half of it. The next two programmes were about Jeff Lynne.

A great night for Brum Beat.
