TheDailyBeast: Summer 2012's Lost Legends

8 of 13

Marvin Hamlisch

(June 2, 1944–Aug. 6, 2012)

Legendary composer and conductor Marvin Hamlisch, who died Aug. 6 at age 68, is in rare company. He is one of only 11 people to win the EGOT grand slam, snagging each of the four major creative awards: Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. His music played vital roles in films like "The Way We Were" and "The Sting," for both of which he won Academy Awards. He was named 1974’s Best New Artist at the Grammys, and took home two of his three Emmys for his work on Barbra Streisand’s 1995 TV special. His iconic melodies for the Broadway musical "A Chorus Line" not only earned him a Tony but also the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
