Basil Poledouris (1945 - 2006)

One of my favorite film composers passed away last month at the very young age of 61. The linked bio gives a great overview of the man; you know his works even if you don't know him -- he composed a great many soundtracks including such films as CONAN THE BARBARIAN and THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER.

I'm surprised I didn't hear of this sooner, being a big soundtrack fan, but I'm off to listen to ANVIL OF CROM now...

I'm opening iTUnes now to see if I have Anvil of Crom here at work... I KNOW I do at home!

Truly sad. The Hunt For Red October is one of my favorite soundtracks. I'll put it on now.

Good Luck!
