    A few years ago, he was working on a new item for a musical score with
    his computer and electronic keyboard. Well, he had to step away from the computer for a bit, and the saying "Kitten On The Keys" took on a whole
    new meaning. Kitty came in, jumped on the keyboard, and with a few paw strokes, completely deleted the large project that he was working on.

    Hi Janis! Great to see you and glad to be here with my dog Trinket that's a small brown chichi. He's a great dog, yet aggresive and set in his ways.

    Daryl,

    I think it should be Andrew Lloyd Weber ...

    A few years ago, he was working on a new item for a musical score with
    his computer and electronic keyboard. Well, he had to step away from the computer for a bit, and the saying "Kitten On The Keys" took on a whole
    new meaning. Kitty came in, jumped on the keyboard, and with a few paw strokes, completely deleted the large project that he was working on.

    I am am Andrew Lloyd Weber afficionado ... I think he's a musical genius just as Bach, Beethoven, Brahms etc were ... I'm stopping short for Mozart, that's another category.

    When they had the 25th anniversary performance of Phantom of the Opera in London's Royal Albert Hall, my daughter and I had tickets costing hundreds of pounds each ... and well worth it. We went to Broadway to watch his work, Hamburg, other places. Even contemplated Melbourne ... but the plane tickets were too expensive.

    Anyway, the story about ALW's cat is authentic, she destroyed the entire score of "Love Never Dies" which was stored, without backup somewhere, on his Clavinova. That's how we know he doesn't score on paper anymore.

    So Yamaha engineers were flown in and his instrument was disassembled to see what traces might be left in the chips and a substantial amount was recuperated. He still had to rewrite several portions, bridges etc ... There was no orchestral scoring involved.

    "Love Never Dies" had a short carreer, 6 months in London, 6 months in Melbourne and Brisbane, 1 month in Copenhagen and 1 month in Hamburg. The public loved it, the critics destroyed it and the financial backers withdrew fearing for their investment. I saw it in London and Hamburg, with my daughter, of course ... a masterpiece, thanks to the cat.

    With his latest piece "Cinderella" the cat was nowhere near and he daily backed up his work.

    Some trivia about data-retrieval: little is it known that about 80% of all data on the computer discs that went down when the WTC towers collapsed eventually was recovered ... and that was "a lot".

    I fully support! I also really like his work. I even set my alarm clock to the melody "Pontius Pilate's Dream", but unfortunately I had to refuse, because, it didn't wake me up, but I dreamed, I met a galilean, a most amazing man. ;)

    Have nice nights.

    Not bad actually. Well behaved too except when you go somewhere or if someone leaves. Doesn't even eat human food unless you tell him you can. =)

    Hi Jon!

    leaves.

    My dad bought an irish setter once that was friendly to non-family members as can be, *until they tried to leave*... once, that dog decided to bite the village Doctor on the ass :(

    My dad couldn't appologize enough as you can probably guess...

    Doesn't even eat human food unless you tell him you can. =)

    When I was training our dogs, I found that if you didn't give the dog leftovers, the dog wouldn't try to steal food ...until I got my first black labrador retriever.. then all bets were off in that respect. I'm sure he was thinking, "Your Food is My Food!"

    Take care,
    Janis
