Composer James Horner ( above) has died at the age of 61 after crashing his plane in California. Horner made his name with a series of iconic scores in the ’ 80s, including Aliens, The Wrath Of Khan and The Search For Spock. He won an Oscar in 1997 for his Titanic music, worked with James Cameron again on Avatar, and more recently scored The Amazing Spider- Man.
