In 1990 he released a solo album "Armchair Theater".
In February of 1994, Lynne fulfilled a life long dream by working with the three surviving Beatles on their Anthology album series, and reunion tracks "Free As A Bird" and "Real Love".
Lynne teamed up with ELO keyboardist Richard Tandy to reform ELO in 2002 for an album called Zoom. A tour and DVD followed.
