Andrew Lloyd Webber Diagnosed With Cancer


It's been a bad weekend for icons whose careers relate to music. First Morrissey takes a spill onstage in London and now Andrew Lloyd Webber is diagnosed with prostate cancer. According to his spokesman, the cancer is in the early stages. "Andrew is now undergoing treatment and expects to be fully back at work before the end of the year," a statement said. That's an enormous relief, because we can't wait for Love Never Dies, his Phantom of the Opera sequel in which the Phantom has moved from the Paris Opera House to Coney Island. Seriously. [BBC]
