Oh no! He's done so much for the film music world...it will be so much poorer without him. And I was hoping to have him and Julie Kirgo on as guests when The Goldsmith Odyssey gets to The Ballad of Cable Hogue...always admired his championing of Peckinpah's western films. I fear to learn what this will mean for Fox soundtrack titles and the Twilight Time Blu-ray series.
RIP Nick, and thanks for all you did. My condolences to his wife Julie Kirgo.
Very sad to see this. I met Nick once, in New York, when for reasons too convoluted and pointless to go into he stopped up into my parents' apartment. I had seen on Facebook that he was ill, and was concerned. A very sad loss.
Had the pleasure of meeting Nick during my FSM internship, and occasionally corresponded with him in subsequent years. A real gentleman and a tireless advocate for an art form that meant so much to all of us here. He will be missed.
