TMZ reported of Steinman’s death, “We do know it appears it was sudden … there was a medical emergency call to his home around 3:30 AM Sunday to transport a male patient.” An exact cause of death is currently unknown.

Steinman has also worked with a number of other artists, including Bonnie Tyler (he wrote and produced her hit, “Total Eclipse of the Heart”), Air Supply (he wrote and produced “Making Love Out Of Nothing At All”) and Celine Dion (he co-produced her “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now,” which he wrote for a group called “Pandora’s Box”).
