Cancer Type – Prostate
Bio – Andrew Lloyd Webber -The composer who has graced multiple Broadway scores with his talent is impotent due to his prostate cancer.
Short Story – Known for his musical composition for Broadway musicals and film scores, Andrew Lloyd Webber received knighthood in 1992 by Queen Elizabeth II. Songs such as “The Music of the Night” from The Phantom of the Opera, “Don’t Cry For Me, Argentina”, and “Memory” from Cats remain widely popular today.
His career has been nothing short of a success. His personal battle with prostate cancer left the composer impotent at 63 years old. After being diagnosed with the disease in 2009, he sought alternative therapies before deciding to remove the organ, as doctors assured him 100 percent chance of full recovery.
He told Piers Morgan on his ITV1 Life Stories show: “‘I am a ladies’ man who can never make love. I am resigned to that.”
Andrew Lloyd Webber is cancer-free.
