Today we have lost the amazing composing talent of John Barry who has died of a heart attack at the age of 77.

I, along with countless others, have been inspired, encouraged, and entertained by his wonderful music.

Over his amazing composing career John Barry wrote a wonderful variety of memorable themes and film scores including Midnight Cowboy, Born Free, Chaplin, The Black Hole, Indecent Proposal, The Ipcress File…(the list goes on!), and 11 James Bond films.

One of my all time favourite John Barry themes is from the 1979 film The Black Hole.

May you rest in peace John Barry O.B.E.
