Sad news as we've lost another Classic Rocker. Former ELO cellist Hugh McDowell passed away on November 6th. The news was confirmed by his former ELO bandmate, and fellow cellist, Mel Gale.
Gale wrote on his Facebook page on November 7: “I’m sad beyond words to have to pass on the news that my old friend and fantastic cellist Hugh McDowell passed away last night after a long illness. We met in our mid-teens and were close until we left ELO in 1980. He was a beautiful free spirit, had such a natural gift as a cellist and just a lovely bloke.”
