LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Greg Sill, 63, music supervisor and film/TV music exec, died March 17 following pneumonia, according to a family member.
Sill was the son of legendary music publisher and label exec Lester Sill, a partner of Phil Spector. Greg Sill had a long career in the music/TV business dating back to 1976, beginning a career as a music supervisor with “Falcon Crest” in 1990, according to Variety. Some of the many credits of his career include “Knots Landing,” “Dallas,” “Homefront,” “Full House,” and “The Drew Carey Show.”
His most recent involvement was five years supervising music for FX crime series “Justified,” according to Variety.
Sill’s pneumonia was contracted after kidney and liver failure, according to reports, and social media postings in Sill’s memory indicated that he had struggled with drugs and alcohol for a decade, Variety said, with repeated visits to rehab and a period of homelessness.
“His condition was acute, in terms of where things ended up,” his brother told the trade magazine.
Sill’s family suggested donations in his name could be made to the Musicians Assistance Program, a unit of MusiCares.
