Mike Edwards was an English cellist in the band ELO (Electric Light Orchestra). He played in ELO from their first live gig in 1972 until he left the band in January 1975, of his own choosing. He became a Buddhist and changed his name to Deva Pramada because of his religious convictions. Edwards was killed on the A381 between Harbertonford and Halwell in Devon, UK, on September 3rd 2010, when a circular hay bale weighing 600 kilograms (1323 lbs.) rolled down a hillside and collided with the van he was driving. He was 62 years old.
