    Default Washington State PBS Profile of Lynn Elsworth

    Lynn Ellsworth gets a well deserved profile on Spokane PBS. I had no idea that he and Wayne Charvel grew up together and played in a band together and thus started Boogie Bodies. This guy built the necks and bodies that Ed used for the years that mattered for Van Halen...1977-1983. Every album and tour from the first one to 1984 primarily featured a Lynn Ellsworth created neck and/or body.

    Holy !
    That's a great piece of rock , not to mention music , history . I've heard the name countless times courtesy of those early Ed interviews . Never knew any more about him or the extended background he had in the 'biz' . Nice to also finally put a face to the name ...

    Thanks for sharing that

    A good friend of mine who lives up here in the PNW has known Ellsworth for years... Now that I'm back up in WA, I should give him a jingle and see if he can schedule a little field trip to Spokane...

    I've always wondered what the connection was between Southern California and the Pacific Northwest when it came to Boogie Bodies and Wayne Charvel's shop during the era that Ed was building his original Frankenstein and this clarified it a lot! I've lived in L.A., Northern California and Seattle and it is one hell of a long distance! But Wayne and Lynn's friendship and the fact that they played in a band together as kids makes sense of this distance!
