Adam, you were a brilliant songwriter, musician, collaborator and friend.— David Javerbaum (@davidjaverbaum) April 1, 2020
Gorgeous melodies spun out of you like silk through a loom.
You enriched millions of lives with your boundless creativity, none more than mine.
Thank you Adam.
I love you.https://t.co/QBJh0RWDp5
