BMI Mourns the Loss of “Dark Shadows” Composer Bob Cobert

Posted in News on February 25, 2020

BMI is saddened by the passing of GRAMMY and Emmy-nominated composer Bob Cobert. Classically trained, The Dark Shadows musical scribe, who was responsible for the top 10 hit “Quentin’s Theme” from the renowned soap, also wrote the score to the acclaimed Winds of War, created the folk opera Frankie and Johnny, and added his name to orchestral works and pop songs. That’s in addition to penning iconic TV game show themes that include Password, To Tell the Truth and The Price Is Right, among others. Other impressive credits that fill up Cobert’s decades-long career include scoring the daytime drama The Doctors, as well as his penchant for sonically terrifying audiences in horror features The Night Stalker, The Night Strangler, Dracula and Trilogy of Terror.

Bob Cobert will be remembered fondly for the many multi-faceted marks he made in musical history. BMI will miss him.
