Singer Gary Wright dies at 80

The music world lost a legend this week in Gary Wright.

According to Fox News, Wright's family confirmed his death earlier this week. The famous singer had reportedly suffered health problems for many years.

Fox noted:

His son, Justin Wright, confirmed to Fox News Digital that the musician died Monday morning at his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California alongside family. "He was battling Parkinson’s and dementia for six years," Justin added.

Wright is known in the music world for several hits, including  "Dream Weaver" and "Love is Alive." He produced 12 different albums and produced music with former Beatle George Harrison.

Given his fame and popularity, along with unforgettable tunes, Wright was honored across social media upon the news of his death.

"We have lost a dear friend, great performer, musician, singer and songwriter, the wonderfully talented Gary Wright. I have know him since Spooky Tooth and we toured incessantly together in 1976/77 on my Comes Alive Tour. A kind and gentle man I already miss. Love you Gary. RIP," Peter Frampton wrote.

"Sad to hear that Gary Wright has died - worth sharing this clip of him having a great time with his dear pal George Harrison recording ‘Don’t Try to Own Me’ in 1992," the Beatles Book Podcast wrote.

Wright was also a child actor, "having performed in the Broadway production of "Fanny" with future "Brady Bunch" star Florence Henderson," Fox reported.

Sad news in the world of music. Gary Wright, the musical genius behind hits like "Dream Weaver" and "Love is Alive," has passed away after a courageous battle with Parkinson's. His timeless music will forever live on, touching the hearts of generations," Eric Alper tweeted.

The legendary singer is survived by his wife, Rose, and his two sons from his first marriage, Justin and Dorian.

Clearly, he left quite the legacy, and his music will live on forever.
