Out of the Blue

James Bond composer John Barry dies aged 77 (thanks Neutronbeam) announces the passing of the man who created the soundtracks of many memorable movies, including all the early James Bond movies (though it is unclear how much he contributed to the iconic James Bond theme, which is credited to Monty Norman). My opinion is that about half the early success of the series was due to the suave Sean Connery and the other half is due to Barry's compositions. One of his Bond themes was also the wedding song for MrsBlue and me: "We Have All The Time In The World" from On Her Majesty's Secret Service.

R.I.P.: Impressionist David Frye dies in Las Vegas at 77.
