He studied Alderlea Boys’ Secondary School, but from 16, long before Jeff co-founded the Electric Light Orchestra with Bev Bevan and Roy Wood, he was a part of several bands, including the Rockin’ Hellcats, the Idle Race, and The Move which soon became Electric Light Orchestra. Their first self-titled album came out in 1971, receiving positive critiques from several music magazines, only boosting the band`s popularity, however, Wood then left the band after several arguments with other members, which left Lynne as the one responsible for the music and lyrics of the band.

Throughout the 1970s, the band`s popularity rose with each album, which only increased Jeff`s net worth. The band`s second album came out in 1973, entitled “ELO 2”, and the same year, the band`s third album was released, entitled “On the Third Day”, which achieved silver status in the UK.
