Yes it was 3 years ago MR John Barry left us On my way home from work on that day I decided to walk up a small hill that looks over my town on a clear cool winter's evening. I started to hum some of John's great melodies. I started to think how his music was a part of my life, with so many different emotions. But the greatest was the appreciation of the beauty of love in all forms. I stayed on that hill for about a half hour, but being January it started to get a little too cold for my liking. So I walk down the hill back into town.R,I,P JOHN, WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU-FOR SURE.

I have enough stress in my life.

Indeed. Yikes! I thought it meant we lost Williams.

John Barry is certainly missed. He's definitely in my top 5 of all time.

THANKS GUYS-GOOD POINT-but I do believe if MR WILLIAMS passed on most will know about it, long before one of us get it on here. For the simple reason, the world knows John Williams not just us.

The world also knows, John Barry. There was massive media coverage of his passing.

Continue to Rest In Peace, John.

I'm not a fan of celebrity grave hunting, although I understand it is a form of pilgrimage for some. Anyway, for the sake of information, no I believe he was buried in New York where he had made home for so long.

I'm sure someone will tell you the exact location but like I said I don't go in for that sort of thing personally.

I hope nobody names the site of John's grave. That is a place for his family and friends. Fans can best remember John by listening to the music and watching the films.

Some fan videos of Jerry Goldsmith's grave appeared on Youtube. Ghoulish and inappropriate. Not nice.

I for one would go to see a film, not because of the stars, or the director, or the subject, but because John Barry's name was on the poster.
Sadly missed but not forgotten.

My favorite composer. Wish he was still alive today.

I think that Dances With Wolves is one of best scores ever.

Without realizing that it was a 3-year anniversary today I started to whistle one of my favorite JB tunes "I'll drink to that" from The Chase today in the morning as soon as I left the house. Spooky coincidence, isn't it?

Unless I'm reading it wrong the subject line does say "JOHN BARRY, we will never forget you".
What part of that is confusing you?
