Funny you should notice the CB/ELO similarities! It just so happens that both CB and ELO are two of my all-time favorites. ELO since 1976 and CB since 1978. I've been waiting for great music to make a comeback; I know... the sun is going to burn out before there is a return of well-written music again.<P>ELO's KUIAMA!!<BR>CB's 5000 YEARS/DON'T KNOW CAN'T TELL!!

Thanks for the info, Andy, I'll check out your suggestion. In case you may not of heard the CD yet, check out ELO's 'ZOOM' CD from 2001. Great music! Jeff Lynne had to cancel the tour here in the U.S. last year because there was't enough interest. Guess everybody wants Hip Hop music.

I`ve always liked ELO! I still can`t believe that they were taken to court regarding a concert they did here at The Silverdome back in the 80`s.They were accused of playing sections of tape instead of playing live!<P>If that`s the case,Janet,Brittany and everyone else who dances non-stop during their show while claiming to sing should suffer as well.
