For the record, Charles Thaxton was a distant Relation to me as I discovered.

I"m so sorry to hear on his passing I wish we could have meet face to face.

May he rest in peace.

R.I.P. Charles Thaxton. He and I shared a love for Herschel Burke Gilbert's music for "The Rifleman".

He was a huge fan of Frontiere's scifi music - OUTER LIMITS and INVADERS - as well as Richard LaSalle and Paul Dunlap (whom he was in touch with). If there is an afterlife, then he'll finally find the answer to his biggest question - if there are aliens.

Thor, this is a wonderful tribute to those FSM members who have departed. Thank you for sharing with those of us who have not been here as long as so many of you and did not have the pleasure of knowing some of these members..

This is very sad news. Charles seemed like a genuinely nice guy and was charmingly enthusiastic about his interests. I realize now after reading his bio at CD Baby that I've probably heard his music on 'Hearts of Space'.

RIP Charles. frown

Nailed.
I'm in the process of synthesizing a few items of late that have emerged by happenstance and you ladies are playing the muse. Come August it'll be the 20th anniversary of (drum roll) Guy McKone's departure. Hard to believe it's been that long. Some stretch, huh Thor?

Indeed. I'm also amazed that it's been another 10+ years since I posted this thread (originally intended as a 10th anniversary tribute thread).

Terrible to hear about Charles. When health starts failing the picture changes out of all recognition.

Charles and I had been in touch from the moment we released our first MMM CDs. He was our biggest fan and was always so appreciative whenever he had a question to run by me. He was obsessed by composers nobody else seemed to talk much about, and was so thrilled when we released some of Paul Dunlap's music, as he had been in touch with Paul many times in the past and Paul was a dear friend of mine. I posted a short announcement about Charles' passing on my Facebook page and have been astounded by the number of responses, and everybody who knew Charles at all knew him as the same kind and sweet person that I did. His widow Stefani has posted on that thread, too, so if anyone wants to add their thoughts to it, which I'm sure she will return to, it's here:

I also posted an announcement on the Classic Horror Film Board, where Charles was an active member, and she will see this as well:

Charles was a gentle soul, of which we need more like that in this world...

Charles one of the nicest people on FSM - it does gut me in life how the kindest of people seem to pass too early, not sure why maybe the nature too over care for others not putting enough time in their self's.

R.I.P. Charles Thaxton, you had great taste & knowledge in music.

The New Discovery Recordings Facebook page has reported that Jim Doherty passed away:

"We are immensely saddened to hear of the death of Jim Doherty, sound engineer and devoted fan of Bernard Herrmann. He was a friend and we will miss him greatly."

If you go to the Facebook page "Mrs Kittler's Drama students," there is more info. He passed away on September 21st.

I always enjoyed reading his posts here and elsewhere. I also recall exchanging some e-mails with him 10-15 years ago, and he was very gracious.

R.I.P.
