Colin Walker (born 8 July 1949) is an English cellist who played with Electric Light Orchestra from 1972 to 1973.

He was born in Minchinhampton, Gloucestershire, and was educated at Marling School in Stroud and the Royal Academy of Music in London. By his own admission, his greatest regret was not playing on The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" (Haines, Guttenbacher, and Petersdorff 2000).

After leaving ELO, Walker returned to teaching. He played cello on "Fool's Gold", a track on the album Thought Talk by Starry Eyed and Laughing (Haines, Guttenbacher, and Petersdorff 2000).
