Who? What, Mike Edwards isn’t a household name for you rock fans? For shame. Edwards was the cellist for one of the more unique rock bands of the 70’s, the Electric Light Orchestra (or as their friends called them, ELO).
Actually I had no idea who he was either, but even more strange is how he died. A 1300-pound hay bale rolled down a hill and crushed his van as he was driving down the road. Crazy stuff happens in England. But here’s Mike in an ELO classic. Enjoy.
