A member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Black is currently writing songs with Van Morrison and collaborating on various new musicals. Known primarily as a lyricist, his Bond themes include "Thunderball," "Diamonds Are Forever," "The Man With The Golden Gun" and "Surrender" from Tomorrow Never Dies.
