The singer/songwriter Andrew Gold died of a heart attack at age 59. Son of movie composer Ernst Gold and singer Marni Nixon, he had a long and wonderful career. Besides his great session work with Linda Ronstadt and his own hits ("Lonely Boy"), he was putting out cool music recently, including "Copycat", a CD of Beatles/Beach Boys/etc. covers that was on "repeat" in the MV car player for a long time. Well worth hearing!
