Tuba Player Was Part of Pop Culture History

If you're not a musician you may not be familiar with the name Tommy Johnson, but you certainly know his work.

Johnson, who passed away on October 16th, was the tuba player who played those ominous "shark" notes in the JAWS theme composed by John Williams.

A musical tribute to Johnson will be held on December 3rd in Bovard Auditorium at USC.
