To think that guy could sit down and write music

for these musicals.... whiz it all onto disc and then sit back and watch the money rolling in.

With just one musical... Phantom of the Opera...

he sold over 40 million albums !

Many top groups have a 20 year career without getting total sales near that figure

In fact I think Phantom beats Sgt Pepper sales...

am I wrong ?

He ripped off Pink Floyd. If you listen to the Phantom of the Opera overture, you'll hear a very distinct similarity to a chord progression/sequence in Echoes. Roger Waters was rather peeved about that.

Funny you should say that because

the big number... Jesus Christ Superstar

is a big rip off from that song... Cast my fate to the wind.

But then, they re all at it

Justin's... Nights in white satin is a rip off

from the song... "I....I who have nothing...."
