Default Marvin Hamlisch Mystery

The recent passing of Marvin Hamlisch is interesting to say the least. He passed away this week of a still "undisclosed illness" at age 68. I searched and have not found a shred of evidence or discussion regarding as to the cause of his death. I first heard of him in 1974 when his "Entertainer" helped earn him a Grammy for Best New Artist. He was 30 at the time so he wasn't young by any means. He was an interesting choice. A formidable talent who wrote one of my favorite early tearjerkers "The Way We Were", though I love Gladys Knight's version better Barbra's. Anyway, this mystery cause of death has me perplexed. Just his relateives being private or was there something more to it? Hm.
