But then he does go on to accuse you of some serious crimes!!!

"(Love TG) Thief, Sorcerer, Wavelength, Firestarter, Flashpoint and Risky Business"

Do you plead guilty to those following crimes, you Robber!! Warlock!! Arsonist!! Trouble Maker!! Dodgy Dealer!!



Apparently I own Firestarter, Sorcerer and Heartbreakers (wow, the stuff I bought when eBay used to do auctions! wink ) but haven’t played any of them for donkeys’ years. Good old Tangerine Gream!

He didn't particularly like fans.


Correction - he didn't like Ford Thaxton. The original fanboy who Jerry said "has no life".

----------------------------
I remember reading on here that he was quite mocking/scathing towards Lukas* and I thought he didn't like Jeff Bond either?

*something regarding The Swarm and Wu Tang Clan?

He did happily sign dozens and dozens of autographs after the various concerts I went to in London. Granted, he preferred to sign those things behind closed doors, but that was probably shyness/tiredness/privacy rather than a dislike of fans per se. The fact he did those concerts in the first place should tell us something. I think he revelled in the fact that his music was appreciated, just not so much that he was appreciated.

Here's that interview: https://thesandpebbles.com/snam/jerry-goldsmith-interview.mp4

That's actually a truncated version of the interview though. The full version (with the bit where Yost reels-off Goldsmith's credits) was close to 30 minutes. It used to be on line, but I can't find it now. frown

I have to say, the Yost interview features what must be Jerry's best hairstyle! big grin

A scathing review of Air Force One by Jeff Bond faxed directly to Mr. Goldsmith?

Edit: Jeff Bond telling Mr. Goldsmith that " he worshiped him like a God" (to Mr Goldsmith's huge annoyance)? Not sure about Lukas, but Mr. Goldsmith did prefer looking at the corner of a room rather than acknowledge him in one instance.

Didn't he also tell Richard Kraft to go packing when Kraft had a massive stack of LPs to get autographed? The lesson in Kraft's case is that persistence does pay off. big grin

"He didn't particularly like fans"
---------------------
Haha!
THAT'S the understatement of the year!
The stories I heard, from the old MFTM and Legend Society days, are hilarious.
His disdain for The Fans is LEGEND-ary!
He probably preferred the music critics over the fans wink


I am not so sure of his disdain of fans, but for sure he was not very pleased to be physically surrounded by a crowd of fans after a concert event....not so direspectful for his fans, just embarrased with a crowdy situation.

For sure he also was more open to any praise coming from other cinema profesionals and pals than from anonymous hard fans with no involvment in the business, so maybe no legitimity to his point of view.

Anyway, I met and spoke to him at least 5 times from 1989 to 2003 and got no hard time anytime with him, fortunately. Always has been polite and nice to me.

I eventually managed over the years to get from him 4 autographed LPs and 1 autographed CD....so I may consider myself very fortunate having had so great times with my hero.
