Andrew Gold played several instruments and arranged music on several Linda Ronstadt albums in the '70s along with plenty of his own creations that we'll never forget. I remember his song 'Lonely Boy' on the radio when I was a kid. It did go Top 10 hit in 1977.
On June 6, 2011 the Los Angeles Times reported that Andrew Gold, had died. He was 59.
Gold died Friday in his sleep at his home in Encino, said his sister, Melani Gold Friedman. He had cancer but had been responding well to treatment, she said.
