    Default RIP Basil Poledouris

    Rest in Peace

    1945- November 8, 2006
    A great composer, known primarily, I would think, for his score to the movie Conan the Barbarian - a truly amazing set of music.

    Wow, missed that one...I agree, a brilliant score for a classic and consistently under-rated film.
    RIP

    (also RIP Ferenc Puskas, footballing legend, who's probably got his own Frontroom thread by now)

    'Tis sad. I have and like his music for The Hunt of Red October. I've been meaning to get the Conan scores and Starship Troopers too. Looking at his filmography, he's done quite a bit of work - more than I would have guessed. Thanks for the music Basil and rest is peace.
