Christian put this down himself (this is a Williams Quote) "he claimed that he wasn't so much concerned with the many Oscars he's won as much as all those he's lost over the years to other composers". Now that sounds rather arrogant to me...I am sorry but my ears are trained for other types of music. I aknowladge that he is a fantastic composer and I do like several of his scores but I do also accept that there are many other fantastic composers! Williams is by far not my favorite but I do know he is very very good....People just focus far to much on him and ignore everyone else so yeah...thats the problem I have
