He will forever be remembered for composing the soundtracks for the film blockbusters including Titanic, Avatar and Braveheart but James Horner brought a lot more music into our lives than you could possibly know. He was one of the great Hollywood composers and he will be deeply missed. James died in a tragic plane crash on Monday morning in California, Horner’s death was confirmed by his assistant, Sylvia Patrycja, on her Facebook page.
“We have lost an amazing person with a huge heart and unbelievable talent,” Patrycja wrote. “He died doing what he loved. Thank you for all your support.”
From his early years he was destined to work in Hollywood and he always stood out from the crowd by claiming that this was not a job it was art. James Horner has left us with a beautiful legacy of music and talent like his won’t be seen any time soon.
