It is so interesting to hear people criticize James, yet when if the people were to ask Ron Howard and Brian Grazer what they thought of Horner's music, they would back off their comments. In fact, the composer for the little mermaid stole the music from Frank Sinatra's My Way.
I bet if there are any musicians who write music, even they could be criticized for stealing a piece of music, since there are so many songs that have been written today. Bethoveen stole work from himself like Horner did, and so did many of the other composers.
I ask anyone to write "new music" and I bet anyone could call them "stealers". People need to respect the composers and what they have to do in such a limited time and yes, Williams has stolen some of Horner's themes, but I ask the question..."Does it really matter?" The simpsons, Danny Elfmans Theme was stolen from The Jetson's theme opening.
If you are going to criticize Horner about stealing music, criticize everyone writing music today!
