We have some sad news to report. The composer of, among other classic soundtracks, Transformers Generation 1’s background music Robert J Walsh has passed away, aged 70. The sad news was broken by Varèse Sarabande Records.
For many of us, the soundtrack to Transformers Generation 1 is iconic. From the main theme to the the battle themes to the Vince DiCola inspired music used in season 3, Robert J Walsh’s music provided a score that is both enduring and incredibly memorable even nearly 35 years later. It is a true testament to what Robert J Walsh gave us as fans when we have been asking for his soundtrack to be released in some form for years.
He will be missed, and his music will endure as the testimony of his life.
Rest in peace, sir.
On behalf of the staff of TFW2005, we offer our sincerest condolences to Mr Walsh’s family at this time.
