Singer-songwriter Michael Stanley died last Thursday (4) in Cleveland, United States. He was 72 and had been battling lung cancer for seven months.
With his band, Michael Stanley Band, the singer reached the Top 40 in the 1980s with the songs “He Can’t Love You” and “My Town”.
The group was formed in 1974, even when its members were in college, and separated in 1987, as sales started to fall since the beginning of the decade.
Stanley also worked for 30 years on WNCX rock radio in Cleveland. On its Facebook page, the radio said the musician will always be remembered as a loving father, brother, and husband.
“Michael battled lung cancer for seven months with the same strength and dignity that he carried throughout his life. He will always be remembered as a loving father, brother, husband, loyal friend, and leader of one of the rock bands in Cleveland’s greatest success. ”
According to the Associated Press, a restricted funeral was organized for the singer.
