    R.I.P. musician/songwriter Adam Schlesinger

    This COVID-19 virus claims another from the music community....Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne ("Stacey's Mom") fame.

    Nice article on Adam that talks about all of the Emmy, Tony, Oscar, and Grammy nominations that he earned: https://variety.com/2020/music/news/...es-1203552130/

    What I didn't realize was that he wrote the theme song from the great Tom Hanks musical comedy movie "That Thing You Do!" Tom Hanks tweeted:

    There would be no Playtone without Adam Schlesinger, without his That Thing You Do! He was a One-der. Lost him to Covid-19. Terribly sad today. Hanx

    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down.'- Bob Newhart
