ELO Bassist RIP

Kelly Groucutt, bassist for Electric Light Orchestra died of a heard attack on February 19, according to his official website. Groucutt was a member of the group from 1974-1983. He passed away in Worcester, England at the age of 63.

I saw ELO in their heyday at The Nassau Coliseum. It was an amazing show. At the time it seemed like there were 40 people on that stage. We see bigger productions now, but it impressed me then. There was so much hair and so much music coming off that stage.
