Legendary Film Composer John Barry Passed Away

The legendary film composer, John Barry, sadly passed away on the 31st January at the age of 77.

Responsible for so many of the James Bond film soundtracks including A View To A Kill and Goldfinger.  Barry’s distinctive composing style likely defined from his years with his own pop band The John Barry Seven.  He was awarded 5 Oscars for his other soundtracks including Born Free, Out Of Africa and Dances With Wolves, a personal favourite responsible for igniting my interest in film scoring.  Other soundtracks include the score to Chaplin, Zulu and Midnight Cowboy totalling over 100 filmscore credits.
