The biggest tragedy is that many current film composers took up music in the first place. Better if they'd become electricians or software engineers instead.

1930 called. It wants you back.

Well, anything is better than being Basil Wrathbone.

A nurse who was taking care of Miklos Rozsa late in his life was attacked in the street outside his home and murdered by her estranged husband.

Elliot Goldenthal was leaning back in a chair in his kitchen one morning, when it fell backward. He hit his head and sustained brain damage. This cut his music career short, and I'm not sure he has really written a lot since, though he has been working with Julie Taymor, his Significant Other. The most recent score he has written, as far as I can tell, was for her film version of Shakespeare's THE TEMPEST (2010).

I know he wasn't associated at all, as far as I can tell, with that debacle she was part of, the SPIDERMAN TURN OFF THE DARK Broadway musical....


Yeah this is truly regrettable. I hope his life wasn't otherwise affected too greatly, but the world of film music lost one of its most unique and enjoyable voices.

For me, tragedy was losing Richard Stone at an early age. His score for Sundown: a Vampire In Retreat was stunning, and I wanted him to compose many more scores.

RE: Goldenthal

I thought his injury only had a negative impact on his speech, and that his musical abilities were fine.

Years ago at O HARE AIRPORT IN CHICAGO on a typical very windy day as Jerry Goldsmith got off a plane the wind took his hairpiece and it went flying into the front window of another plane. There was a half hour delay on that plane's takeoff[ha-ha-ha-]. just couldn't resist it.

Film music is not a genre. It is an application.
