I hadn’t intended on doing another birthday post today after having done one yesterday, but I discovered that today is the Hans Zimmer’s 56th birthday. He’s known for his movie soundtrack compositions and his work as a music producer. He has composed soundtracks for over 100 movies, including Gladiator, Inception, Sherlock Holmes, The Dark Knight, and Tears of the Sun. I’ve included a short compilation video with some of these included, as well as the video for Video Killed the Radio Star by The Buggles, whom he worked with in the ’70s. He makes a brief appearance in this video, which seemed like a good excuse to post it! I think he’s the keyboard player, dressed in black, round about the 2:52 mark.
