[ # ] Andrew Lloyd Webber reveals two songs that inspired the music of Jesus Christ Superstar
October 23rd, 2020 under Andrew Lloyd Webber


It has been 50 years since Andrew Lloyd Webber wrote the music for Jesus Christ Superstar. Today, he added two songs to his Spotify playlist that he says inspired some of the tunes from the musical.

The first song was The Immigrant Song from Led Zeppelin because they were recording in the studio next door to them at the time. I think that the legendary band influenced What’s the Buzz, The Temple, and Damned For All Time/Blood Money.

The other song is Joe Cocker’s take on With a Little Help From My Friends because the sexy, raspy singer’s band worked on JCS. As soon as ALW said that, all I could hear in my head, was I Don’t Know How to Love Him.

Do you hear Zepplin and Cocker’s influence in JCS now, or is it just me?
