Mike Edwards had an interesting life to go along with his unusual death. He studied cello at the Royal Academy of Music in London before joining Electric Light Orchestra in 1972, playing with the group until January of 1975. Upon departing ELO, the eccentric musician became a sannyasin of the philosophical discipline of Osho and changed his name to Deva Pramada, which means “divine contentment.”

He lived simply for the rest of his life in various communes around the world, eventually settling in Devon, England. Pramada died on Sept. 3, 2010 on the road near his home in Devon when a bale of hay weighing 1300 pounds rolled down a hillside and collided with his van.
