While many fans are asking the same question: what was Eric Carmen’s cause of death?

Mrs. Carmen’s statement revealed that Eric passed away peacefully in his sleep over the weekend.

“It is with tremendous sadness that we share the heartbreaking news of the passing of Eric Carmen,” she wrote.

About Eric Carmen

Carmen was behind iconic tunes of the ’70s and ’80s that have lasting power into the 2020s. After Carmen released “All By Myself” in his self-titled debut album in 1975, the song became a radio hit, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The iconic track went on to be featured in films such as the 1995 Nicole Kidman movie “To Die For,” “Clueless,” “Almost Famous” and “Bridget Jones’s Diary.”

In 1996, Celine Dion covered “All By Myself,” and it became one of the legendary Canadian singer’s more recognizable songs.

Carmen was also the writer behind “Almost Paradise,” included in the Grammy-nominated “Footloose” soundtrack. “Dirty Dancing” helped another one of Carmen’s songs, “Hungry Eyes,” become a hit in the late ’80s. It spent 25 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at No. 4. Carmen’s follow-up, “Make Me Lose Control,” also made its way up the charts in 1988.

Though the Raspberries formed in Cleveland, Ohio, in the 1970s, the band’s music remains beloved and earned a boost from their iconic 1998 hit “Go All the Way” being included on the “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack.
