RIP JOHN BARRY

Post by davekershaw » Mon Jan 31, 2011 4:14 am

Farewell to one of music's true greats!

I was fifteen/sixteen when I first really took notice of his music.
I remember searching the local record stores for his albums.
After this, I eagerly awaited new films that he had scored, and he seemed to just get better: Somewhere in Time, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves, simply beautiful music.
He was one of my greatest influences, and this is a very sad day!

Rest In Peace John - You deserve it!!

One of my favorite scores was Dances with Wolves. I must have listened to that score 1000 times.

An amazing artist.

Here's his imdb page, pretty impressive:

He certainly created a great legacy for us to enjoy and aspire to! A great life and great music!

imagine if John Williams and Trent Reznor met at Bernard Hermann's for lunch and Brian Eno was the head chef!

r.i.p forever!

I was very fortunate to do an internship with him while he was scoring 'Dances with wolves'.
Truly inspiring and unforgettable. Best month of my life!

I really love his music! And, it will live on forever!

Especially "The Lion In Winter", because this is simply a fantastic movie in every possible way (with one of my all time favorite actors Patrick Stewart).

yes, I have the collection of James Bond soundtracks, and love the work of John Barry, have listened quite a lot to his work without realizing it until now. Excuse my ignorance & thanks for blogging with titles of his work. He must have been a very modest man, but kind of interesting also to have written those songs.

Am sure a collection of angels will be playing a dramatic fanfare for him as he flies up to heaven. Somehow i can visualize trumpets.

Inspiring work, may he rest in peace.
