Podcast Episode #19 – Lessons in Lyrics and Life from the Legendary Tim Rice.
Joseph, Evita, Chess . . . Beauty and the Mother-Humpin’ Beast.
These are just a few of the shows that Sir Timothy Rice wrote the lyrics to (obviously I got a little excited about that last one), so you can imagine he’s got just a few interesting stories to tell, and truth bombs to toss.
So if you’re a writer, a producer, or just a fan of Jesus Christ Effin’ Superstar, then listen in to hear Sir Timothy talk about . . .
- The secret ingredient needed for a great musical
- Which comes first, the music or the lyrics, and more importantly, why
- Tim’s least favorite of his own lyrics
- How he deals with getting notes (and if he can take ’em, so can you!)
- And how the sippy cup may mean the end of Broadway as we know it
Oh, and if you don’t hear me talk for awhile, it’s because I was uncontrollably laughing during one of his stories, so I had to put my microphone on mute.
Enjoy the podcast, and special thanks to Hand To God on Broadway for sponsoring this session!
