John Barry died of a Heart Attack in New York. He was one of my favorites and he composed over 110 different films, a lot of which were James Bond scores. He made James Bond cool and bad ass.
Here are some of my favorite score by composer John Barry.
Engima, The Living Daylights, Out Of Africa, A View To A Kill, Octopussy, The Black Hole, Moonraker, King Kong -1976, Diamonds are Forever, On her Majesty’s Secret Service, You Only Live Twice, Thunderball, Goldfinger, From Russia with Love, and Dr. No.
Here is a video that samples his music so you can hear it.
