They announced this to the press last week and I must say that Mr rice certainly didnt have the spring in his step that Mr Webber seemed to have about the project! His face was a picture of boredom!

Why is he doing it?
Its not that he needs the money- just think what his current royalties are for his back list of shows that come i daily!

It was published on here recently that The Lord is worth 700m, cannot help wondering where Tim Rice is on the scale, I know he is not sawealthy as The Lord and probably along way behind him, but I guess he lives comfortable on his royalties from his shows, especially The Lion King.

Tim is one of the greatest word-smith with lyrics, I would of thought if he did not want to do the Wizard he would say no, he's not like desperate.

Just because he's bored at press launches or driven insane by ALW on such occasions, doesn't mean he doesn't relish the chance of trying to reach the heights of the original lyrics of this incredible score.

Lion King alone has probably made him enough him enough money to last a lifetime as well as Chess, Joseph, Jesus and Evita plus he co-wrote a new numbers for Aladdin. I think it's a chance for him to work with Lloyd Webber again, it would be great if they could work on one last original musical together.

I agree it would be great if there was one last swansong of Webber and Rice together on one last original musical, then both you hang there hats up and call it a day.

Hold it! There's nothing wrong with Tim Rice's work!

He is still one of the world's best lyricists.

Isnt this all wrong? I am sure that Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote together a couple of years back when they shoved King of My Heart into Joseph - Buzz Buzz, whats the big event 3 years later!
