Q Magazine Feb 1993. On Andrew Lloyd Webber & Echoes

The Who The Hell column interview with Roger Waters in the November issue of Q raised a question about the similarity between musical phrases in Phantom Of The Opera and Pink Floyd's instrumental Echoes.

Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber has pointed out that the music of Phantom was, in fact taken from incidental music he himself composed for the film Gumshoe in 1971. We regret any suggestion of plagiarism and apologise to Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber for any embarrassment by our article.
