Birmingham Walk Of Stars

Roy was invited to attend the presentation of the star on the Birmingham Walk Of Fame for Jeff Lynne, which was hosted by comedian Jasper Carrott. The ceremony was held at the new library which stands next to the Birmingham Rep in Broad Street. Jasper interviewed Jeff, who spoke about his career and the early days in Birmingham. He was then presented with the plaque by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham.

Roy also met up with some old friends from The Nightriders, Roger 'Ollie' Spencer, Dave Pritchard & Greg Masters, also Richard Tandy from ELO, who all caught up over a few after ceremony drinks in the Lord Mayors chambers. Speaking with Roy today he said "It was good to see another talented musician be honoured in our hometown, congratulations Jeff".

Jeffs star now joins the likes of Ozzy Osbourne, Lenny Henry, Chris Tarrant & of course Roy on the walk honouring the residents of the city who have made a significant contribution in the categories of music, television, film, radio, theatre, sport, business and literacy.
