    Composer John Barry has died at the age of 77. His film composing credits are almost too numerous to get one’s head around – the James Bond movies From Russia With Love, Goldfinger, Thunderball, You Only Live Twice, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Diamonds Are Forever, The Man with the Golden Gun, Moonraker, Octopussy, A View To A Kill, The Living Daylights and an uncredited arrangement assist on Dr. No), The Lion In Winter, Zulu, the 1976 version of King Kong, Raise The Titanic, theLogBook.com forum favorite The Black Hole, Somewhere In Time, The Legend of the Lone Ranger, Out Of Africa (which, believe it or not, shared material with The Black Hole), Dances With Wolves, Mercury Rising, and, yes, Howard The Duck (hey, the guy had to put food on the table somehow). He won Oscars for Born Free (one for the score, one for the theme song), The Lion In Winter, Out Of Africa, and Dances With Wolves, Saturn awards for The Black Hole and Somewhere In Time, a Grammy for Dances With Wolves, and numerous other awards.

    To put it mildly, a huge talent has left us.
