John Barry dies

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-12321610
Didn't he write some great film scores as his 5 Oscars confirms.
I'm old enough to remember the John Barry Seven.

He composed one of my favourite pieces, the Out of Africa theme. It has a particular personal meaning for me. Cry

Sad loss.  A great composer.  Memorable film scores over the years.

Me too - and Juke Box Jury, for which he wrote and performed the theme tune - Hit and Miss.

Re: John Barry dies

Thanks Strat
Actually one of our friends here on this forum sent me a PM to inform me of your reason.
I must admit I had missed the poignancy of your post and now I too feel sorry for having
raised the question.
Life is full of laughter and tears but the tears can often soften the hard knocks , for a while anyway.
My own experience is that my wife of 57 years may not still be here if it were not for the amazing
care we receive as a nation from the global exchange of  medical professionals.
We continue to praise the care and understanding, and humanity we receive from outside our shores.
cheers
