Adam Schlesinger's girlfriend, Alexis Morley, is speaking out about her last memories with the late Fountains of Wayne member and songwriter, who was also known for his Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated work in TV and film. He died from coronavirus complications on April 1 at age 52.
Morley shared what she says is "the last photo taken of Adam and me, March 15" on Instagram Sunday night (April 26), weeks after Schlesinger's passing. That day, before Schlesinger fell ill and tested positive for COVID-19, the couple were taking "a gorgeous, 4 mile walk that day" in upstate New York.
"It sounds out of character, but in the past year Adam had grown open to, and eventually enthusiastic about, taking long walks outdoors (we just weren’t allowed to call them 'hikes')," she wrote. "This one was 'Poets’ Walk' in Red Hook. We’d gone there before, mostly because we liked the name and had lots of jokes about all the 'poets' we’d see (we envisioned old, cartoonishly-tweedy guys, ambling around, hands clasped behind backs, gazing into the sky for 'inspiration')."
