  1. Pete Postlethwaite always seemed to be in films that held no interest to me so I've not seen much of his output. But I'll always remember him from seeing him in The Usual Suspects.

  3. This won't mean much to many people but the singer Gerry Rafferty died today. His album "Night Owl" was a staple of my childhood.

    R.I.P. You definitely got it right this time.

    That's very sad, I'd heard that he'd been ill for some time with liver problems.

    Besides his massive hit Baker Street people here will also know him from the the track he co-wrote called Stuck In The Middle With You which was so memorably used in Reservior Dogs.

    Sad to hear of his passing sad

    I love "Baker Street", especially the LSO version from the 80's. Sorry to hear the news about his passing.
    I am extremely serious.

    I knew he was ill, but wasn't aware it was that bad.
    Very sad. A true giant of film music has passed.

  5. Damn.

    >>>------------------<>

    One burning arrow for you, John.

    You enriched so many lives with your music.

    I remember very fondly spinning the first five minutes of my Black Hole Read Along LP again and again, just to listen to your fantastic overture in the background while some annoying person talked about space and the Palomino´s mission. My mother thought I was going nuts, saying, "Are you ever going to listen to the rest of the story?"

    Your music was the heart and soul of John Dunbar´s journey into the west, you helped Robert Redford and Meryl Streep fall in love, you gave us a kick in the butt with your Bond scores.

    But I guess what influenced me most in later years was "The Last Valley". It gave so many stories that were stirring in my head a certain mood, a certain style, and made me cherish the creativity behind it.

    You will be missed.
  6. You've got to be shitting me!!! shocked sad

    Somehow I always think a legend like John Barry will live endlessly, but no... at least his music will.

    And to think I recently witnessed his music performed live so fantastically to the point of being very moved by it all, it makes this news double shocking.

    RIP John. At least you deserved your place in heaven.

    Does anyone have a recording of the video snippet he made to the Ghent audience last year? It seems to me that that was his last public appearance, albeit not in person.
    I am extremely serious.

    Oh no. sad I'm actually crying.

    Barry's music has touched me more than almost any other so it's a hard loss, even if he was mostly retired.

    A black day for film music lovers everywhere !
    Another icon is lost to us ...
    Very sad news indeed ... sad

    They showed a clip on the news just now when he was honored for his work in the U.K.
    about 10 years ago . He gave a very emotional thank you speech then . They also mentioned
    the concert and award in Ghent .

    Gonna watch the Ghent concert again later tonight in honor of Mr. Barry ...

    R.I.P. Mr. Barry and thank you for 50 years of wonderful scores ...

    Indeed. For instance it would be nice if they played one of his pieces during the segment where all the dead celebrities are remembered.

    You do know that only his picture will be shown (for a brief few seconds) as part of the In Memoriam segment of the program.

    Barry's so much beyond the Oscars and their tributes. Don't you worry so much about this.
    Love Maintitles. It's full of Wanders.

    But if the viewing figures are so great for this ceremony, his memory can be highlighted to a lot of people.

  8. "People" don´t care about film composers, that´s fact.

    But it´s only fair. I guess when the world´s best plumber dies, only his collegues will honour him, and no one else will know his name. Same with good doctors, architects, and car designers.

    We are John´s people. And we will remember him. That´s all that counts.

    He was a fantastic guitarist, sad to hear that. I loved Thin Lizzy back in the day.

  9. Saddened to hear of the death of Nicholas Courtney, an actor I recall with affection from my childhood as The Brigadier from Doctor Who. He reprieved this role recently in (I think) The Sarah Jane Adventures, and it was a great reminder of the "Golden Age" of the Doctor.

    Ohhhh....sad

    Fittingly just last night I was listening to one of Big Finish' Doctor Who newly recorded audio adventures, and this one guest-starred Courtney (as the brigadier, of course). He sounded quite chipper and dapper, belying his age.
