Digging around through the Internet for Mad Max nonsense today, and stumbled across composer Brian May's obituary from Australian newspaper "The Age". (This is also the only photo I've ever seen of the composer)

I do not have easy access to my LPs, but I thought his picture was on the back of 1 or 2 of his LPs.

They definitely were. that is why I am surprise some people don't know what he looks like. I still have in my head his looks from those albums of years ago. Shame he died pretty young, knew his mood music well and often came up with a pretty theme.

YOR did not know he was dead.

Very sad, indeed!

Didn't BSX Records say that they were going to release more of his scores after 'Return To Eden'?

Just Checked:

we are very happy so many of you were pleased with this one...


Brian May did so much more then just scoring the MAD MAX films and we hope to do one or two more titles later this year...

Several of his titles cry out to be re-issued. ROAD GAMES, PATRICK, HARLEQUIN, THE DAY AFTER HALLOWEEN, THE SURVIVOR, RACE FOR THE YANKEE ZEPHIR, SKY PIRATES and THIRST are but a few of them

Luckily, I have all of those tiltles save one. smile

Always appreciated this guy. I love FROG DREAM aka THE QUEST in particular. It has such a great theme, and terrific orchestrations. The RETURN TO EDEN album BSX put out is really good, and cut from the same mold as QUEST.

I also own PATRICK (fun melodic horror score in a kinda cheesy, pop-oriented, Pino Donaggio way), SKY PIRATES (solid adventurer), ROAD GAMES (solid melodic thriller score) and DR. GIGGLES, the last of which I'm honestly not keen on at all.

Good composer whose melodic style was instantly recognizable (what with those harp glissandi and dinging triangles he used almost perpetually).

Thanks - great to finally put a face to the artist responsible for The Road Warrior.
