R.I.P.

Filed under: R.I.P.

How awful!

Mike Edwards, the founding member of the Electric Light Orchestra, was tragically killed on Friday when a bale of hay rolled down a hill and collided with his car. The force was so great that it caused him to swerve into another care on the road.

Edwards was only 62 years old.

So sad.

Our condolences go out to his family, friends and fans who will surely miss him.
