Anyone know what year had the highest number of composer deaths... not just film composers, but "concert" composers as well. For some reason, I seem to recall that 1975 had a high number of composer deaths.

I don't care which composers died and when, or how closely clumped together their demises were.

All I care about is Hans Zimmer's score-composing formula living on forever...its immortal drone shall sustain us all.

It's not ghoulish. Death eventually comes to us all, even film composers.

Yes. But for some reason the ever-cheerful, always pleasant and friendly Ford A. Thaxton (aka. "Mr. Laughs") seems to feel such topics should be forever off-limits and somehow finds a way to insert the word "ghoulish" into the conversation while chastising the rest of us. smile
