John Barry Has Died
Sad news. My favourite film composer (along with Bernard Hermann), John Barry, has died at the age of 77. Barry was the genius behind the best of the James Bond scores, as well as Born Free, Dances with Wolves, Midnight Cowboy, and many others. His lush and romantic harmonies and melodies helped to establish the unique soundscape of the 60s and 70s. His sound style will live forever.
