ELO Bassist Kelly Groucutt Passes Away

We’re sad to report Kelly Groucutt, the former bassist from the 1970s rock band Electric Light Orchestra, has passed away at the age of 63.

Early reports indicate Groucutt died in Worcester, England, after suffering a heart attack. He’s survived by his wife and four children.

Groucutt left his former band, Sight and Sound, in 1974 to join the then three-year-old ELO. He left the band in 1983.

RIP, Kelly.
