RIP Adam Schlesinger



Music means a lot of many of us -- it was certainly a big part of Robert Anton Wilson's life -- and one thing I've noticed about the ongoing pandemic is that early on, it's claimed many musicians: country singer Joe Diffie, jazz musical family patriarch Ellis Marsalis, rocker Alan Merrill (you probably don't know the name, but you likely know the hit he wrote, "I Love Rock and Roll," which helped make Joan Jett a star) and, particularly upsetting for me, Adam Schlesinger, founder and one of the two main songwriters for Fountains of Wayne.
