Adam Schlesinger dead at 52 from Coronavirus

Adam Schelsinger, founding member of the group Fountains of Wayne, died from the Coronavirus.

According to Wikipedia: “Stacy’s Mom” was written by bassist Adam Schlesinger and vocalist Chris Collingwood, both of whom produced the song alongside Mike Denneen. Its subject matter was inspired by a friend of Schlesinger’s when he was young who had a crush on his grandmother. It was a power pop song with which the group hoped to emulate the sound of The Cars.

I hold the opinion that the kid is stupid, Stacy is way cuter (from the perspective of a 12-year-old kid) than her mom.

  1. Sad news. Wikipedia says he’d been on a ventilator for two weeks. He’s not old enough to have age as a risk.

    Related: A new controversy about Covid-19 has arisen.

    It concerns who should be classified as a Covid-19. If all cases where the deceased was infected are counted, there’s a new argument arising about whether or not it was in fact the cause, since many people have co-morbidities or were very old (a nursing home cluster I read about had victims in the age bracket 88-97).

    This video lays out the case that Covid-19 has been over counted, at least for Italy. However, WSJ has an article this morning that finds that many Italian deaths were Covid-19 but the testing gave false negatives.

    I could only find the article at WSJ.
