JOHN BARRY 1933-2011

A five time Oscar winner, who gave a great deal of pleasure to many, and was a great source of inspiration to me. Repeated listening to the scores of ‘The Ipcress File’, ‘For Your Eyes Only’ and ‘Out of Africa’ to name but three helped immensely during the writing of various books. Let alone the Propellerhead’s version of ‘On her Majesty’s Secret Service’.

Not only did Barry score eleven Bond films, he composed a huge amount of scores including such gems as Midnight Cowboy, The Whisperers, The Lion in Winter, Born Free, Zulu, Dances with Wolves…Take time to listen to this wonderful writer.
