When Mr. Jack mentioned that he shared a birthday with Lalo Schifrin I thought THAT is cool. I share my birthday with CHARLES BUKOWSKI, FESS PARKER and MADONNA but no composer I am aware of. I wondered how many are lucky enough to share theirs with major composers?
Yes, the late Joel Goldsmith (November 19th) -- which makes it a bit embarassing to admit that I don't own a single soundtrack of his, except some odd themes on various compilations. I dig his score for STARGATE: UNIVERSE, though, so I should really get that.
I also share a birthday with Jodie Foster, for what it's worth.
