Sorry. Not famous enough to join Jack Klugman and Charles Durning in the “Celebrities Die In Threes” contest.

Actually I am more familiar with RRB than with Charles Durning.
Actually, the RRB with whom I'm more familiar is Robert Russell Bennett -- composer of the "Victory at Sea" soundtrack... Great music!!

I see that you know your stuff.
Many people attribute the score to Richard Rogers.
In reality, Rogers wrote several themes. Bennett expanded on those themes and did all the actual scoring. He also contributed much of his own original music.
