Born Marvin Lee Aday, the rock musician‘s career spanned six decades across the music and film industries. He was beloved by fans and soared to unlikely rock stardom with theatrical, dark-hearted anthems and an iconic long-haired look.

He was also known for the song “I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)” and for playing Eddie in the cult film “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” with his show-stopping song “Hot Patootie (Bless My Soul).”

Our condolences go out to his family, friends and legions of fans around the world.
