Ripped in July

A selected overview of culture stars relevant to my own tastes who passed away this month - another extraordinary quiet month in this respect. Rest in peace.

Pierre Henry (89), French composer. We have none of his work on CD, but his composition Psyché Rock was the inspiration for the theme song of the awesome animated cartoon show Futurama.
Martin Landau (89), American actor. He played in numerous movies, including Hitchcock's North by north west, but I'll remember him mainly for his roles in the TV series Mission Impossible and Space: 1999.
Jeanne Moreau (89), French actress and singer. She snag a duet with Yves Duteil on one of my all-time favourite songs, L'Adolescente.
