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.

"His sound style will love forever"
Really?

Yes, Roger, some of Barry's music will be forever popular, if only because the Bond music is the pinnacle of a certain kind of 60s cool, and will always retain interest for that.

I'm not disputing that. However, it will surely LIVE, not love, forever in that case.

uhm - why didn't you just say there was a typo?

More fun to hint. I thought it was a pretty broad hint, actually.
Might as well remove these posts now.

I should also have said that it was a wonderfully apt typo. It just might not have been one.
A fine musician, but personally I prefer Morricone,
