RIP: John Barry

One of my favorite film composers is gone. The man who created all those great James Bond scores in the 1960s and 70s including Born Free, Midnight Cowboy, the Lion in Winter, the list is long and amazing.

Some horrible, horrible news to start the week off. The legendary composer, Mr John Barry, has died. He was 77 years old. We caught the news from a Tweet off his fellow 007 composer, David Arnold, who wrote, “It is with a heavy heart that I tell you that John Barry passed away this morning.”

He added, “I am profoundly saddened by the news but profoundly thankful for everything he did for music and for me personally.
