R&B and soul singer Ben E King, best known for the classic song Stand By Me, has died at the age of 76.

This may shock some, but I've never been a fan of the film. It was the first film my parents let me see without being accompanied by a guardian. To me, it was lackluster and flat.

None the less a significantly influential artist has passed.

It just hit the news that Joseph Bennett has died, in an apparent suicide last month. He was one of the two actors who portrayed T. E. Lawrence in the Young Indiana Jones series, appearing as "Ned" in the pilot, "Curse of the Jackal".

Cue Old Nassau (even though Nash was a Carnegie Mellon grad) as the Greatest Generation fades further into history.

The Goonies' Mrs Walsh has passed at 62:

Bad timing. They just had the Goonies 30th anniversary in Astoria over the weekend.

I think younger audiences will also remember him as Saruman the White: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1Vyhve9gtg

Scaramanga in The Man With the Golden Gun was arguably my earliest recollection of seeing Christopher Lee, and one of the first movies I saw in a theater. RIP.

Christopher Lee was definitely a legend. Many of his horror films are classics and far outweigh any of today's "horror" movies. Scaramanga was one of the best Bond villains (although the film as a whole was not one of the better Bonds). And honestly, Count Dooku was probably one of the best characters in the Prequel Trilogy.

Great film career!

His "Braveheart" score is one of my favorite movie scores.

Also R.I.P. to Dick Van Patten. I knew him best as King Roland in "Spaceballs."

Also must mention his great work on the score of "Apollo 13" and the overlooked "The Rocketeer" score - great stuff from him. Second only to John Williams. He will be missed.

Always enjoyed his sense of elegance and style. I will also remember him as the owner of Spinal Tap's record label, (quote: Tap into America). As is probably typical of Record CEO's, especially in the 80's, you get the sense that he knew absolutely nothing of the band or their music that he is spending millions in promoting!

In addition to these roles, I will also remember him as the narrator for the superb EON James Bond dvd documentaries.

As for Horner, sad to hear of yet another great composer's passing. In addition to Braveheart, Rocketeer and Appolo 13, I enjoyed his Star Trek entries. Battle Beyond the Stars is pretty good too. But my favorite James Horner score along with Braveheart would have to be the epic Willow. It's cues were used for the trailers to so many other movies.
