A man who doesn't look like Jeff Lynne in a reconstruction of the light bulb accident

The pop music world was rocked today when it was discovered that Jeff Lynne, the singer with 1970s/1980s band the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), had been injured in an accident with an electric light bulb.

Lynne, 62, the co-founder of the band along with Roy Wood, was changing the light bulb in his shed in Shard End, Birmingham, where he was busy penning more grisly songs for yet another ELO comeback.

The singer changed the bulb correctly, but had left the switch in the 'on' position, so that, when the new bulb was fitted into place, the light immediately came on, giving Lynne an electric shock, and he fell off a stool he was standing on.

It's the second unlikely disaster to befall the band in the last few days, after cellist Mike Edwards was killed last Friday after his car was flattened by a 600kg bale of straw that fell out of the sky onto his bonce.
