Jeff Lynne Net Worth $30 Million Dollars

Jeff Lynne net worth: Jeff Lynne was born in Shard End, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, UK, and began playing the guitar when he was a child. His father bought his first guitar for him for 2 GBP. He played this same guitar until 2012. He formed his first band in 1963, and for the next couple of years, he’d rebound from group to group. In the mid-60s, he began laying the groundwork for his own studio. He released two critically acclaimed albums as an associate of the group, The Nightriders, but the band never took off. Then he joined the Move, which after splintered away to the group known as The Electric Light Orchestra. As the only remaining original member of The Electric Light Orchestra, he has become renowned for his lavish compositions and creative sound. He’s also composed or created success tracks for such artists as Paul McCartney, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty, and Ringo Starr. The Washington Post named him the 4th Finest Record Producer in Music History.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1He was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Recording at 1750 North Vine Street in Hollywood, California on April 23, 2015.
2He was awarded a star on the Birmingham Walk of Stars in Birmingham, England on March 13, 2014.
3Attended Alderlea Boys' Secondary School in Shard End, Birmingham with Paul Henry.
4Teamed up with Bob Dylan, Beatle George Harrison, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty in the group The Traveling Wilburys.
5Began his musical ventures with an old two-track tape recorder in his parents' living room; Lynne would sometimes overlay so many parts the oxide would wear off the tape.
6Actually worked sparsely with Electric Light Orchestra in the recording studio; band members would learn Lynne's new songs just prior to recording, and usually would hear them next on the radio... shortly before tour rehearsals began. Live recordings of Electric Light Orchestra tend to reflect a rawer sound than their highly-polished studio work, though in performance the accompanying light-show and theatrics well made up for it.
7Transformed his Los Angeles home into a housewide recording studio, with patch bays in every room; used this extensively in making his latest album, the reconstituted Electric Light Orchestra's "Zoom".
8Began Electric Light Orchestra with Roy Wood as a side-project to their band The Move; the side-project soon eclipsed the main one, and The Move disbanded.
9Usually candid and open about his own work and musical ideals; almost never speaks publicly on other topics. Fans who have met Lynne usually found him kind and straightforward.
10Lead singer and songwriter of the rock group Electric Light Orchestra.
11Former member of the rock bands The Move and The Traveling Wilburys.
