Alan Parsons Project co-founder dies

An agent says Eric Woolfson, co-founder of the 1970s British progressive rock group Alan Parsons Project, known for the hits “Eye in the Sky” and “Don't Answer Me,” has died of cancer. He was 64.

Gallissas Theaterverlag, a company that represented Woolfson in Germany, said Thursday the musician died this week in London. Woolfson's Web site said he died early Wednesday.

Woolfson was born March 18, 1945, in Glasgow, Scotland. Together with Alan Parsons he founded the group, whose music was popular in the U.S. and Germany.

After the group disbanded in the 1990s Woolfson continued to work as a music producer and composer of musicals. His musical “Edgar Allan Poe” is currently playing in Berlin.
