Sometimes an artist has a big impact on your life. The music from John Williams has done that for me. I started listening to John Williams music as music with Star Wars. Certainly I had seen movies with John Williams soundtracks, like Earthquake, The Poseidon Adventure and Jaws. I never listened to the soundtracks as music. Mostly it was lack of opportunity as I didn’t have access to records or a record player. It all converged with Star Wars Though. We got a record player and I wanted the music. I’ve been a fan of John Williams ever since.
With his 85th birthday last week, Joh Williams is artist of the week.
Here’s some clips. Enjoy
