Ben Gibbard pays tribute to Adam Schlesinger

Ben Gibbard has been hanging with us from his home studio for the past couple of weeks.  This past Thursday, he took a moment to pay tribute Adam Schelinger from Fountains Of Wayne, who at the age of 52, lost his fight against the COVID-19 virus on Wednesday.

I had the pleasure of working with Adam through his management company and not only was he super talented (Emmys, Grammys and an Oscar nomination), he was also one of the nicest humans on the planet!

Ben points out that he never had a chance to actually meet Adam but they had lots of friends in common.  Adam's loss shows us that this coronavirus is not just effecting the elderly and those with underlying health issues, but also aflicting folks of all ages.

Listen to Ben cover "Barbara H." from Fountains Of Wayne's self titled album around the 41 minute mark.

Be sure to join Ben every Thursday at 6p for his weekly hangs.

Please... let's all do our part to flatten the curve and get to the other side.   Stay home... Stay healthy... and let's stay connected together!
