Monty Norman, James Bond composer, dies

Monty Norman, who wrote the James Bond theme music, died at 94 on Monday, his website said.

The message said, “Monty Norman died on July 11, 2022 after a short illness.”

Monty Noserovitch was born in east London in 1928.

He sang in huge bands before turning to composing, writing songs for “Songbook” and “Poppy and Make Me An Offer” and for Cliff Richard.

His best-known effort was scoring “Dr. No” in 1962, although John Barry rearranged it.

Norman sued the Sunday Times for libel when it claimed Barry wrote the column. The theme appeared in 24 Bond movies.
