Who writes your favorite musical score in movies today? There is one person that rises to the top for me...Hans Zimmer. My all-time favorite movie soundtrack? Gladiator...no question. Gladiator is one of the Number 1 selling movie soundtracks of ALL time. Hans Zimmer is different than most composers , like a Howard Shore or a John Williams...he is very closed off to performing his music in public and very rarely if ever does he conduct. His background is Rock and Roll (which is why I love him, I'm sure). "I like working in a collaborative way," he says. "I'm not very ego-driven about being 'The Composer.' Whoever brings in great ideas should be welcomed."
