Beware of The BLOG...it creeps, it leaps, it glides & slides all over the place.
I wonder if he played the tuba parts on Close Encounters of the Third Kind?
I wonder if there's much call for a tuba player?
Who will take his place???
Baron Steve: That's a good question. Some research is in order.brooke: He made a good living for himself & was quite famous. He did get an obit in The BLOG.phoenix: I dunno. Perhaps he is irreplacable. Um, do you play the tuba?
BTW I ran an internet check on Tommy Johnson and he does appear as a performer in Close Encounters Of The Third Kind.
a sad day for tuba lovers the world over
hiya Cube..o that Jaws music still scares me..lol
the school band our son is in has FOUR tuba players - that's right - FOUR! why, i'd say tuba players the world over should have a moment of silence.
The tuba made the Jaws theme all the more scary, if you ask me. A piccolo or a flute could never have pulled that off. I have underrated the tuba, but no more! nanc: my daughter's high school band has at least 4 tubas too, maybe more. I guess that's pretty much standard for school bands.
I was sad to hear this. :( I went to UCLA and was in the marching band, so a lot of people I knew, knew Tommy Johnson (and some had even taken master classes with him). From all reports, he was a cool guy.And yes, I've been told he definitely WAS the "voice of the mother ship" from Close Encounters. :)
jenny: hey, thanks for the insider info.
The Jaws song and Psycho's screechy dischordy tune are simple, and very unnerving. They are probably the most recognized terror musical scores of all time.
I would add the Halloween theme and the Exorcist theme to that creepy tune list.
