The creator of more film scores than I can count, but most notably several James Bond flicks, and skating classices Somewhere In Time, Out of Africa, The Cotton Club, and Chaplin.

Don't forget Dances with Wolves -- one of his better scores IMO (and very skatable).

RIP, Maestro Barry.

And he was married to Jane Birkin....as well as doing some amazing film scores.

I loved John Barry's music- Somewhere in Time, Out of Africa, Dances with Wolves. I think he either won 5 Oscars or was nominated for them. In any case he won multiple Oscars.

RIP John Barry.

His list of scores (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000290/) is second to none. Truly a genius and such a gracious person to his fans and other composers.

imdb bio (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000290/bio), including 5 Oscar wins
