    Ennio Morricone, the Italian composer whose atmospheric scores for spaghetti westerns and some 500 films by a Who’s Who of international directors made him one of the world’s most versatile and influential creators of music for the modern cinema, died Monday in Rome. He was 91.

    His death was confirmed by his lawyer, Giorgio Assumma, who said that Mr. Morricone had been admitted to the hospital last week after falling and fracturing his femur.

    I can't claim to own all his records, but I do own a whole lot of them. Love this man. What a sad day! :uh:

    Some of my favorite films were scored by Ennio. A loss to the music and film world. :rip:


    Sidenote, Metallica fans should at least recognize this one piece, which has been the intro music to Metallica concerts dating back to the early or mid 1980's.

    The Ecstasy of Gold

    Love his music. RIP.

    The Ecstasy of Gold is also on the Modelo commercial.

    His music made those movies.
