Jesus! What An Achievement.

Which musical influenced me me the most? Without doubt Jesus Christ Superstar. I was never very fond of musicals. Their style was just too old-fashioned for my musical taste formed by Elvis, Jerry and Mick. But when on a car ride from Munich to Stuttgart a friend of mine put a cassette of Jesus Christ on I was fascinated and overwhelmed. Andrew Lloyd-Webber and Tim Rice proved by that album - it was not yet a stage musical then - that it was possible to tell a dramatic story using Rock music. The moment  I heard it I knew that I wanted to do this myself. Looking back I would say that JCS changed the genre. Listen to Les Miserables, Chess or Jekyll & Hyde. None of these nor any of my own shows would be what they are without Andrew and Tim's first and successful attempt to create a real Rock Opera. I have the greatest respect for them, and I'll be grateful forever.
