While I lived in California, I was talking with a friend while driving in my car. He wanted to find his ex-wife. It reminded me of a story in the Bible, and I could clearly see a musical on stage. It never left my head.
It was not until I was back in England that I began to write the lyrics. It just flowed. All my friends told me not to ask a certain ‘musician’ to help with the score. Stupidly, I eventually did, but told him I had no interest in him composing. So what happened…?
Les Sherlock stole my intellectual property. He is bombastic and does not take no for an answer.
This is what he wrote about it…
He claims I asked him after finding no one else.
