    Default James Horner possibly in plane crash

    "The pilot of a small aircraft, which is believed to have been registered to famed film composer James Horner, was killed when the plane crashed into a remote area about 60 miles north of Santa Barbara on Monday. It was not immediately clear whether or not the pilot was Horner himself."

    "James Horner, the consummate film composer known for his heart-tugging scores for Field of Dreams, Braveheart and Titanic, for which he won two Academy Awards, died Monday in a plane crash near Santa Barbara. He was 61.

    His death was confirmed by Sylvia Patrycja, who is identified on Horner's film music page as his assistant."

    Tragic, always had a soft spot for his Commando soundtrack.

    Sad news. I have been out of the loop and had not heard of his death til now. His soundtrack for The Rocketeer is a favourite of mine. R.I.P.
