I'd like to ask him about his views on other composers. He's rarely commented on his peers (although I know he's not obliged to) and I'd love him to open up a little on what he really thought about them.
I'd love to know what he thinks of the Spaghetti Western Orchestra and has he been to any of their shows recently?
For anyone unaware, the SWO only play Ennio Morricone music, and are fantastic musicians and theatre performers....I highly recommend catching some of their stuff on YouTube.
I love the SWO (what happened to them?) but my guess is he wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole. He has always, and still does, hate the term "spaghetti western" and even has been known while signing CDs to NOT sign the ones with that title or rub across it and then sign it.
