    RIP. I will always be grateful for the impact that his work has had on my life. One of my favorite memories is walking with my wife hand in hand out of our wedding to “That Thing You Do.”

    That's so awesome. The first dance at ours was to "All My Only Dreams." Jimmy was right, that song was beautiful and deserved more attention.

    RIP, Adam. You were a musical genius.

    It never came to my mind that he produced a good chunk of Even If It Kills Me until I saw Tony post about it on Instagram.
