From the moment that The Beatles ended their reign of dominance, the band became the unattainable benchmark for any new group making waves within the industry. While many attempted to replicate their success, only one band earned the blessing from John Lennon, who christened them as “the sons of The Beatles”.

Some musical outfits were more unashamed than others in attempting to follow the example set by The Beatles, and none more so than Jeff Lynne’s Electric Light Orchestra. Lyne formed ELO after suffering a musical epiphany after the Fab Four inviting him and his then-band, The Idle Race, to a session at Abbey Road for The White Album.

“I was blown away,” Lynne later told Classic Rock about the life-changing experience. “Nobody had heard it yet, but there I was in Abbey Road, actually listening to it being made. I stayed for maybe half an hour, then I thought it would be polite to leave, because you feel a bit of a dick in that company. So I went back to where The Idle Race were recording and, of course, it didn’t sound quite so good”.
