    Well, there are many artists making music releated to Star Wars, for example Imperial March cover by Epica or Clones that is tribute song for Grand Army of The Republic. I think we can't count them as "Star Wars composers" because they are not making music for Star Wars movies, tv series, games etc. But yea, this is Star Wars releated music :D Thanks for that info :)

    Btw, I've not checked if this has been mentioned before, but does Arjen Anthony Lucassen count as a Star Wars composer? After all, he did write one Star Wars related song for his Star One's so far the only album, Space Metal, the phenomenal song called Master of Darkness. ^_^ Also, Symphony X have a StaWa medley, although of course it's not their own composition. :)

    Hey, nice to see all of you here :) I'm discovering new Star Wars musicmakers all the time! It's really amazing that on Star Wars music worked not only John Williams but many more great composers. And more amazing is the fact that there are many fanbands making good music for all of us! A added few goods to the Connected Artists. May the Force and Music be with you all!
