Adam Schlesinger, the co-founder and singer connected to pop-rock band Fountains of Wayne and the Oscar-nominated songwriter (e.g., Stacy’s Mom), has died on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 from complications related to Coronavirus COVID-19 Disease. Schlesinger was 52, and had been on a respirator for two weeks prior to his death.

“As many of you are aware, Adam had been hospitalized with Covid-19 and although he had been making some small improvements over the last few days, Adam’s condition was critical and he was ultimately unable to recover from Covid-19 complications. He was truly a prolific talent and even more so, a loving and devoted father, son and friend. We are terribly sorry to convey this loss.”

—Josh Grier, Attorney for Schlesinger

Fountains of Wayne, which was co-founded by Adam Schlesinger and Chris Collingwood, was best known for the band’s 2003 hit “Stacy’s Mom,” a humorous track about a young boy who has a crush on his girlfriend’s mother (Rachel Hunter). The song was nominated for a Grammy Award.

Schlesinger’s success as a songwriter began before the band’s hit song. He co-wrote the title track for the fictional ‘The Oneders’ (pronounced “wonders”) in the 1996 Tom Hanks film “That Thing You Do,” and also received Oscar and Golden Globe nominations for the cinema music work prior to “Stacy’s Mom” success.

A statement from his family, released by Collingwood via Twitter, confirmed Schlesinger was diagnosed with Covid-19. Schlesinger was put on a ventilator and sedated “to facilitate his recovery.”

“He is receiving excellent care, his condition is improving and we are cautiously optimistic …His family appreciates all of the love and support,” in the statement from Josh Grier.

Before his hospitalization, Schlesinger was writing the lyrics and music for a new theater production with comedian Sarah Silverman.

Schlesinger was survived by his two daughters, Sadie and Claire, his life partner Alexis Morley, his parents Barbara and Stephen Schlesinger and his sister Lauren, according to the statement from Josh Grier.
