RIP Joel Goldsmith

My mother's maiden name is Goldsmith. It's for that reason that the names of Jerry and Joel Goldsmith stood out in TV credits.

Of all the work he did, I would have noticed Jerry's name in the credits for a few "The Twilight Zone" reruns and a whole lot of Star Trek TV and movie work. Later, I'd notice the name Joel Goldsmith popping up a lot, too. Joel became the sound of Stargate much the way his father was the sound of Star Trek. They both have a ton of other shows to their name, but I saw them primarily in their sci-fi work.

Joel passed away near the end of April after a long battle with cancer. Jerry died of cancer back in 2004.

I'm gonna miss their music and seeing their last name on screen.
