very insightful and entertaining, even if mos of the book was about pop music in the 60s. I loved reading about the creation of shows. unfortunately, the part I was interested in started in the last 50 pages of the book. There needs to be a Volume 2. I think he is writing one, or something. ( )

Hearing the album and then seeing the original Jesus Christ Superstar as a teenager had such a profound effect on me (I still know the entire musical off by heart), I romped through this entertaining memoir which is full of wit and gentle self-deprecation - and I seriously hope for volume 2. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

With wit and candour, Tim Rice describes the gilded path that took him from cricket and comic-obsessed schoolboy to one of the world's best-known lyricists. Along the way he worked as a petrol pump attendant and articled clerk before becoming a management trainee at EMI. But it was his fateful meeting with Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1965 which was to be the turning-point in Tim's career. Immediate fortune didn't follow and it took the album of Jesus Christ Superstar to reach no.1 in the States before they were taken seriously. Covering every aspect of his life until his marriage to Jane McIntosh and the opening of the stage production of Evita, this is an engaging and fascinating autobiography.
