If you have watched Titanic, Braveheart,The Land Before Time, An American Tail, Fievel Goes West, Aliens, Avatar, and many others, you have had the opportunity to enjoy James Horner’s amazing work. He was the composer for the scores of these movies.
I didn’t even know he passed. I was searching for animated movie scores and was browsing Fievel Goes West and The Land Before Time music and I saw a lot of RIP James Horner messages. Googled it immediately and found out he passed away yesterday. Very painful and sad news. Talented and amazing individual. He was only 61, too. He was flying a plane which crashed. His music helped define my childhood and led me through a wide variety of emotions as I watched the movies he composed for. He will be missed dearly.
Rest in peace, good sir.
Here is a bit of his work:
