I just followed the link to Gummy's page... my heart is once again smashed. What a positively wonderful guy. I miss him a lot.

"Yuk yuk"


My thoughts exactly. You only have to read the book of condolence -

http://www.legacy.com/PostGazette/GB/GuestbookView.aspx?PersonId=96434034&PageNo=1

- to get a flavour of how he affected people's lives in such a positive way. (Good to see your contribution, Alex, by the way).

I also knew Christian Madsen reasonably well, and was stunned when Urs told me what had happened.

When a composer or actor dies, it can be pretty sad and shocking, but when one of our own goes, it hits much harder.

RIP, all of them.

I have a great story to James "Pav" Pavelek that I will share with you. James - sorry Pav -was most time just like a hippie and very "hey man.." cheech and chong sorta way but when I would talk to him about his passion of certain composers it was like a light switch and he would get very serious and very philosophical.
He was a great artist and would sit at bars and do these amazing portraits while you sat and drank. He could draw anything and everything. He lived very simple and was very easy going. The night he ran the film of his Dr Rozsa interview I could see the nervousness in his running the film and even in the interview itself in the film - but that was Pav. The patience of Dr. Rozsa to stop a story while they changed the film and pick up where he left off was absolutely priceless.
I often think about how valuable that film is today for it's insight in Dr. Rozsa stories and I hope that maybe one day a post from Zooba will appear that links it to a youtube video. So here is a toast of my beer at the bar to you Pav - you are dearly, dearly missed.

I have to admit that I don't remember too much about these guys, but I have a feeling that H Rocco was a Hans Zimmer fan, like myself.

Check out this link and scroll about a third of the way down. H. Rocco weighs in on Zimmer in his post to this thread:

Thank you Cat And Timmer!

Great thread Thor! It's really cool that you took some time out to honor our dearly departed.

Guy McKone, who passed away before the millennium turnover, was not only a connaiseur of vintage scores and musicals. He was also a wonderful verbalist. In fact, his writing was very inspirational even though one didn't necessarily share the interest for the actual topic. I'm sure Howard L can express this more eloquently than I - he wrote an entire cyber-play after he passed away, a kind of fictional "quest" for Guy's grave, I believe.

Ouch. Necrophilia is most certainly not one of my pastimes. It was more of an "In Search of Guy McKone" thing along the lines of "Guy, we hardly knew ye".

Suffice it to say that Guy McKone was film music appreciation personified. Usually, fiction comes out of real life experience. The extraordinary weekend in Detroit in the summer of 2000 turned "usual" upside-down and inside-out and all within barely a year of Guy's passing and the subsequent piece of 'fiction'.

That same weekend saw a cadre of FSMers hit it off very well with Mr. Goldsmith. Although I disagree with your assertion of false accusation, I nonetheless choose to retain fond memories of the other Guy (Tucker), such as when we shook hands upon the start of Jerry conducting Papillon. This occurred on Sunday afternoon and it was our 3rd joint attendance of the same concert at Symphony Hall. That handshake has proved a denouement, of sorts, that remains as vivid and joyful as another fond memory, that of Guy afterward urging me to give Jerry the copy of the play that Jerry had helped greatly to inspire. Jerry got it, who knows if it ever meant anything to him, but the smile on my face right now tells me it doesn't matter a hill o' beans.

Howard L and Jim Cleveland don't post much these days either. But that's for another topic.

There's a story in there (isn't there always a story) on my end. Will try to put something together in the very near future. Don't hold me to it, though.smile

Oh, but Howard, I SHALL hold you to it. You shall always be FSM's grand storyteller. Although there are others more eloquent, there are few more poignant. You betcha I'm gonna hold you to it. I'm greedy and I'm needy. I'm also envious. It's your gift that has made these feelings bloom, especially in regards to your "In Search of..." story. smile

So step it up and bring forth the golden words.

Joe

Howard, I'd love another e-copy of the play in question. It'd be actually kind of nice to see a website with all of the Templeton stories archived (as in, not on a message board).

Something like templeton.blogspot.com?

I only knew of Jens Christian Madsen because he was a fellow dane, and I had noticed him write from time to time. I was saddened to hear about his passing even though I hadn't ever talked to him. A shame I didn't know him better.

Howard, your Guy McKone saga was one of my favorite reads of all time. No kidding! Wow, I remember all those guys. How time flies!

Ron Hardcastle only joined the board in August-2013, but managed to post many interesting things before he passed away in September-2014 -- much too early. He seemed passionate and opinionated, but always with thought-out arguments.

I had no idea Ron Hardcastle had died! How sad. Thanks for notifying us.

This thread is such a sweet tribute for the fallen here. Thanks Thor! I hope when My time comes I too would be remembered here (of course not any time soon! )

We also lost Attack of the Drones aka Richard Kleiner aka Aldo Arancegui (http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/fsm_profile.cfm?ID=9088) in April 2014. He was only 26 years old. frown I didn't know him well but here's a tribute to him in Spanish from another community he was part of: http://elvortex.com/la-lin_ea-vortex-top-ten-de-peliculas-para-ninos-y-no-tan-ninos/

Wow.

Thanks for the beautiful memorial, Thor. I too didn't know of Ron's passing. I remember a couple of pleasant interactions with 'm. Saddening.
