Ex-We Five Folk Group Member Dies

A former member of the 1960s folk-rock group We Five, who also produced a major Billy Joel album, has died. Michael Stewart was 57.

Stewart, who produced Joel’s breakthrough album “Piano Man,” died Wednesday in Sacramento after a long illness.

We Five had a hit in 1965 with its song “You Were on My Mind,” and the group earned a Best New Group Grammy nomination that same year.

Stewart moved into producing albums and singles for Joel, Tom Jones, Kenny Rankin and Amad Jamal.

Stewart is survived by his wife and three children.
