ELO bassist Kelly Groucutt has died of a heart attack aged 62.

Groucutt joined the group in 1974 and remained with the band for nine years.

Speaking to the BBC, Groucutt’s former bandmate Bev Bevan paid tribute to the bassist: “He was a larger than life character who made a huge impact on people’s lives. He was a nice man. He always took time out to talk to people and would never refuse to give anyone an autograph. It’s a great shame.”
