    Or the alternative perspective...

    82 years old? Successful career doing music for a living? I'd say that one friggin' happy ending.

    Although, sad to see then go!

    Definitely one of the all time greatest, and probably as big an influence on the state of scoring today as exists.

    Who will ever forget The Magnificent Seven? All you have to do is think about it, and you can't get it out of your head for days and days.

    I'd love to write one thing that hits the mark on that level. He wrote dozens and dozens of them.

    i was wondering about Elmer recently too.. We used to see him every year here in Dublin.. he stopped coming over about 5 or 6 years ago

    he was the last conductor i saw use a stripe on screen as indication of the upcoming cue.. no click for him

    or us..

    There's a lot of people over here that'll miss him.

    he always had cool braces too what a guy he was one of the old school definitly

    More sad news. 'The Magnificent Seven' started me off in music. I learned to play it on the recorder when I should have been learning 'Three Blind Mice' ha ha. His opening credits music to 'Walk on the Wild Side' is one of my favourites.

    Rest in Peace,

    Sad - I think one of the next ones to bite the dust will be Legeti. While not a filmcomposer per se, his music has still been inspirational to many composers, and changed the way music can work in films.

    Another great loss to the film music community.
    It's very sad to see him go. He composed many truly wonderful film scores and, through his music, he will never be forgotten. May he rest in peace.
