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.
