Mike Edwards of Electric Light Orchestra Beat Out Cancer Before His Tragic Death


Jasper Solomon reveals that the star made triumphant over his battle with the deadly disease before he was killed in a freak accident with a bale of hay on Friday, September 3.

Tragic Electric Light Orchestra star Mike Edwards had recently triumphed over cancer before he was killed in a freak accident with a bale of hay on Friday, September 3. The 62-year-old cellist died instantly after a 1,320-pound (600-kilogram) bale fell onto his van as he was driving through Devon, England.

And friends insist the accident was particularly heartbreaking because the star had recently overcome a bout of depression and undergone treatment for melanoma on his temple. Pal Jasper Solomon says, "He was delightful. He had a bad period with depression but he had treatment which was a success and he was happy about it."

The musician quit the band at the height of its fame in 1975 to become a Buddhist.
