Very saddened to hear of the passing of Hugh McDowell, former cellist in ELO, on November 6, 2018. In a statement from Jeff, “I'll always be extremely grateful to Hugh for playing on the title track of the Simon Apple "River To The Sea" album. After I sent him the song, he got back to me immediately saying he would love to play on it. Being a life-long ELO fan, it was certainly a huge personal & musical thrill. He resided in England, and I, unfortunately, never met him in person, but we had some pleasant email conversations...he came across very kind, warm, giving. He, also, wouldn't accept any money…he said he was happy to be part of the album, and he actually thanked ME for asking him! I was very humbled by his kindness, and terrific tracks that he contributed.” Apparently, he was sick for a while (lung cancer). He was only 65.
River To The Sea… Simon Apple’s critically acclaimed, award-winning album, includes the U.S. Adult Contemporary Top 10 single, Hold Me, and features special guest artists Buck Dharma (Blue Oyster Cult), Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson, John Lennon, etc), John Helliwell (Supertramp), Hugh McDowell (Electric Light Orchestra), Steve Rodby (Pat Metheny Group), Dave Stahl (Buddy Rich, Frank Sinatra):
The track "A Lot Of Hope", from River To The Sea, appears on the movie soundtrack "9/11", starring Whoopi Goldberg and Charlie Sheen. (Click link for info).
