In Remembrance - Carl Anderson

Four years ago tomorrow (February 23), Carl Anderson passed away. He was best known for his role as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar.

I caught him and Ted Neeley (as Jesus) on the JCS 25th anniversary tour and, wow was that good. It was very cool to see these same guys from the 1973 movie belting it out like no one's business.

Most of us have seen the movie. But check out Carl laying down the theme song on The Tonight Show with the glitzy dancers and costumes from the play. I think this was in the early 90s but I could be off a bit.

I enjoyed the Carl Anderson video.
You must be happy that Falling Slowly got best song. Sue

Great film that - I loved it. For some reason I've never bought the DVD I ought to really.

I saw the live show in London but some years after it had been running, still very good. I'm surprised given Joseph gets an airing every few years that they haven't put Superstar back on I think it's the best work of Lloyd-Webber myself
