Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne fame left us too soon on April 1, due to complications of COVID-19. He was 52.
Adam was an incredibly talented dude. He founded 2 other bands, went on to receive Emmys and a Grammy and had recently served as the executive music producer for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend on the CW. He was one of the great pop songwriters of our time. May he rest in power. 🤘
