Siegfried & Roy’s Roy Horn Dies Of COVID At Age 75

People Magazine reports:

Illusionist Roy Horn has died. He was 75. Horn, who launched to fame as part of the duo Siegfried & Roy, died of complications from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in a Las Vegas hospital on Friday, his publicist said in a statement to ABC.

The entertainer tested positive for the contagious respiratory virus last month. At the time, his publicist said that he was “responding well to treatment.”

“Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend,” Horn’s partner, Siegfried Fischbacher, said in a statement. “From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried.”
