Legendary Israeli singer Arik Einstein died on Tuesday night at Ichilov hospital after being taken there earlier due to heart complications, the director of the Tel Aviv medical centre said.
He was 74.
Einstein, born in Tel Aviv, is considered by many the greatest singer to perform in Hebrew.
He began singing in a military entertainment troupe, and upon his release from the army took up acting in theatre.
Einstein quickly established himself as a successful singer, recording folk-pop songs with leading groups.
