There are concert dates, chart positions and a bibliography which lists songooks, biographies and fanzines by fanclubs. Furthermore, there are 11 pages containing all line-ups of the bands Lynne, Wood and Bevan were in.

About 18 pages are devoted to a videography which lists all music videos, the films, the complete promo clips and all TV-shows that have ever been transferred to video!

On more than 130 pages the complete history of the band is told in chronological order: Roy Wood, Jeff Lynne and Bev Bevan - their roots, their history with THE MOVE and THE ELECTRIC LIGHT ORCHESTRA and its leaves until 1996, for the first time in an accurate version - thanks to a dedicated research and the kind help of band members involved!
