A Musical Tribute to John Barry OBE (1933-2011)

It was with great sadness that I heard today of the death from a heart attack, of composer John Barry at the age of 77.

For me, 'Mr James Bond' is right up there with the 20th century's best when it comes to musical compositions.

He won 5 Oscars and a BAFTA Fellowship and was awarded the OBE in 1999.

Here are just a few of his finest compositions...

RIP John Barry
