Might not actually be a coma, but still

Adam Schlesinger Of Fountains Of Wayne In Coma, On Ventilator Because Of Coronavirus

Adam Schlesinger, an Emmy and Grammy winner and Oscar nominee, as well as a leader of the pop band Fountains of Wayne, is reportedly in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator after contracting the coronavirus.

The 52-year-old pop savant has three Emmys and a Grammy in his collection, and an Oscar nomination for “That Thing That You Do,” the title track to the 1996 Tom Hanks-directed film. He has three Emmys and a Grammy for his work as a producer, engineer and songwriter.

In addition to film, his resume includes TV (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Sesame Street), theater (Cry-Baby: The Musical) and his work with Fountains of Wayne, whose hit Stacey’s Mom was No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2003.

“Sad news friends,” reads a post from an Ivy fan account, which said Schlesinger was on a ventilator for two weeks and is now in a medically-induced coma. “We send our prayers to him, his family and doctors,” the post said.

Very sad, doesn't sound great for the guy.

I always liked the singles from that first Fountains of Wayne record a lot, perfect 90s fuzz-pop:



Awful news:

Barely "music news" but Michael Imperioli (Christopher from The Sopranos) has pretty good music taste, and he did an interview with The Quietus about it: https://thequietus.com/articles/28701-m ... e-sopranos

Also, The Quietus's desktop site layout is just awful, mobile version is much better

Very sad.
