He was only 85?

I suspect it was drugs.

I was wondering why he wasn't dead yet.

Let's see now.

Oh, yes. Next on my list is William Daniels.

But did this man do any musical music?

Soundtracks for weirdo movies by that weirdo don't count.

I really like the album he did with Marianne Faithfull not so long after Twin Peaks.

That's too bad. Rest in peace. I appreciated his work and he seems like a friendly guy.

One of my favorite film soundtracks ever.

It captures perfectly the quiet sinisterism of LA.

He was a brilliant composer for dark films

I feel like only Trent Reznor comes close to creating creepy scores for films and television.

R12, I was listening to scores in Youtube, and was overcome with emotion.

Another favorite. Especially when it's played very loud.

I was involved in a project with Angelo circa 1983. He composed music / i was in the cast of approx 20.

I vividly remember bumping into him at a deli catching a bite before rehearsal. We hadn't really spoken to each other during rehearsal, but shared a table and just made converation.

He was so authentic, so genuinely kind and interested in what I had to say. I never forgot it.
