Mike Edwards, former member of ELO from 1972-75, was killed this week when his car was hit by a stray hay bale. Having survived cancer, the 62-year old cellist was driving along a picturesque English country road when POW!
As I said this morning on air, if there is something in life you really want to do then DO IT NOW! You never know when that hay bale will roll down that hill and hit you.
When I mentioned this to my son this afternoon and asked, ‘What are the chances of that?’, he was able to tell me that .032 people per 100,000 get killed in Australia each year by hay bales! You have a better chance of being hit by an errant hay bale than winning the lottery!!
Who would have thought?
