'Charlie's Angels' Theme Song Composer Passed Away


Allyn Ferguson's daughter Jill has confirmed the Emmy-nominated songwriter has passed away on June 23 at the age of 85.

The TV composer behind the "Charlie's Angels" theme song has died, aged 85. Allyn Ferguson passed away at his home in Westlake Village, near Los Angeles, on June 23, his daughter Jill Ferguson has confirmed.

The songwriter rose to fame in the 1970s and '80s, composing tunes for a variety of TV shows. But he will perhaps be best remembered for coming up with the scores for "Charlie's Angels" and "Barney Miller", tracks he composed with collaborator Jack Elliott.

Ferguson's work earned him six Emmy nominations throughout his career and he was awarded the prize for music composition in 1985 for a TV adaptation of literary classic "Camille".

He is survived by his wife Joline, daughter Jill and sons Dan and Todd, as well as six grandchildren, according to the Associated Press.
