RIP Roger Moore

He was a pretty damn great James Bond.

I didnt realize he was so old (89)

I was born when he was James Bond.. My first Bond movie was Moonraker.. I agree he was a great James Bond. Rest in Peace.

Connery was Bond when you were born, although during that time period George Lazenby and even David Niven each actually made a Bond film.

Roger Moore debuted as James Bond in Live and Let Die in 1973.

Right. I worded it wrong. I meant he was Bond for me. I was 18-19 before I ever realized there was another Bond (Connery did one in '83). I thought hey a new Bond, not realizing he did many before. Moonraker, I was 14, so I grew up with Roger Moore as Bond. Though Connery is fantastic..

Outside of George Lazenby (and Peter Sellers) I thought he was the weakest Bond myself.

And though not his fault, most of his Bond movies were poorly written.

Moore was the "campy" 007.

Most of my favorite Bond theme songs were during his tenure, but there were some clunkers, too.
