    Rod Franks the principal trumpeter for the LSO died in a car accident recently. Very sad. Article says he was there for 25 years so i dont think he would have been on the OT sessions but certainly on the PT ones. If he's the 1st trumpet player then he's the first instrument you hear when you hear the star wars theme as the yellow logo appears. I'm an orchestral musican myself.

    Oh wow.... and at such a young age. That just isn't fair :/
    I wish his family the best. His trumpet will be immortalized in SW for sure
