Personal Quote:

[on Frank Sinatra] He had such an influence. He was the most and still is the most remarkable singer to me, with the phrasing and his length of phrase. See more »

When Andrew Lloyd Webber approached him about starring in "The Phantom of the Opera", he made the assumption that Webber wanted him to play Raoul, and spent a year studying Nelson Eddy's performance in Phantom of the Opera (1943). It wasn't until he was at his audition that he learned Steve Barton had been cast as Raoul the week before and Webber wanted him to play the Phantom. See more »
