This is my big cousin Adam. As a little boy I would be mesmerized by his talent. He showed me how cool it was to be an artist. We love you Cuz. Stay strong. Bless you and all of the hero’s at the hospital on the front line. Please keep Adam in your heart. https://t.co/V8fa8HzgyN

And suddenly it hits someone you know, and it feels very different. I’m sending good thoughts to Adam Schlesinger, co-founder of Fountains of Wayne. Beat this sucker, man!

RIP Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), fine singer, witty and satiric songwriter. How terrible to lose him at 52 to this virus.

Fountains of Wayne was named after a really cool lawn ornament store near my college. When The band first hit, I immediately took an interest and rooted for them because of this. Stupid reason to like a band, yes, but then they went and made so many wonderful songs.

I was a huge Fountains of Wayne fan, and I just found out about the passing of Adam Schlesinger. Heartbreaking.

From his work with @fountainsofwayn to his award-winning credits in TV, movies, and stage, millions of fans caught that radiation vibe Adam Schlesinger was groovin’ on. A sad, sad loss for Jersey’s music scene.

So sad to hear the news of Adam Schlesinger’s passing. A prolific and skilled songwriter with so many more songs to share. That Thing You Do is a masterwork and I just recently revisited Fountains of Wayne’s epic record Welcome Interstate Managers. So sad. May he rest in peace.

RIP: Adam Schlesinger, probably the greatest pop songwriter of his generation. Created at least three seminal records with Fountains of Wayne. Welcome Interstate Managers is the masterpiece.

Terribly sad to hear news of Adam Schlesinger’s passing
I loved Fountains OF Wayne. Sang on one of their albums and opened up for them once in LA. As a fan of smart, melodic music Adam and Chris we’re always so great.
Taken much too soon RS
