Akira Ifukube...Composer of Godzilla themes, passes away....

I couldn't believe it. I was just looking for the latest deals on the latest Godzilla movie, and then I see this.
Japanese musician Akira Ifukube, who composed the music to the Godzilla films, has died at the age of 91.
He wrote the theme to the original 1954 Godzilla movie, known in Japan in Gojira, which was used in a number of films about the sci-fi creature.

He received a Person of Cultural Merit award in 2003, considered one of Japan's highest honours.

The Tokyo College of Music, where he was once president, said Ifukube died of multiple organ failure on Wednesday.

what a way to greet the weekend.
