Greetings to all

Umm, as I've first read this very rude and respectless post of yours, Anonymous, I had to think that only a sick mind that just can't see things like they are could ever write something like these nonsense you have written. Just unbelievable what you have written about one of the most talented, greatest and very well respected composer of all time.

JOHN WILLIAMS' music and boring? These two words just don't fit together, pal. I asure you. More then likely you never heard even one piece of WILLIAMS' scores. Every composer has his own style. Every great composer is unique in Hollywood. But no one has the right to offend a great composer such as WILLIAMS is or the ones who adore his work. HANS ZIMMER has a very different approach to his music. Personally speaking I don't like his music very much, just 'cause it's too heavy and less harmonic. By my modest opinion, of course. But I respect him as a musician and as a person of course, as it always should be.

JOHN WILLIAMS is not only a composer. He belongs already to filmmusic history. I can't say the same for ZIMMER yet I'm afraid. Maybe he will too. Who knows. But he has to become much more better then WILLIAMS is, and I doubt that this will ever happen. No offense.

So, dear Anonymous. Try to be more polit and diplomatic when you lunch a critic or a very personal opinion. Otherwise you won't get any friends in here. So, don't make me angry again! You wouldn't like me when I'm angry!

Peace and greetings
