Andrew Lloyd Webber, 1948 - Andrew Lloyd Webber was born March 22, 1948 to William and Jean Lloyd Webber. He was introduced to music by his aunt and began writing music.

It was during this time that Webber met Tim Rice. He eventually dropped out of school to pursue composing music with Rice. His first musical, "The Likes of Us," was a failure. After that, in 1968, "Joseph" premiered at Colet Court. In 1971, "Jesus Christ Superstar" opened and he married Sarah Hugill. Webber tried writing music with Alan Ayckbourn and did "Jeeves", which was not successful. Again working with Tim Rice, they wrote "Evita" in 1975. "Cats," was a hit and beat "A Chorus Line" for longest running musical and highest grossing musical.
