About Bill Conti

A composer, songwriter, and conductor of film and television music since the late '60s, Bill Conti's distinctly exhilarating themes from hits such as Rocky (1976), For Your Eyes Only (1981), and TV's Dynasty (1981-1989) became an indelible part of pop culture in the 1970s, '80s, and beyond. A Grammy winner for Rocky's score album, he later won the Academy Award for Best Original Score for The Right Stuff (1983). Also known for his themes to shows such as Falcon Crest and American Gladiators, he took home Emmy Awards in the '90s and 2000s for his work as musical director on multiple Oscar broadcasts. Still active in the 2010s, he was music director of The Carol Burnett 50th Anniversary Special in 2017. ~ Marcy Donelson
