In a statement Andrew Lloyd Webber said:

“Madeleine and I are shocked and deeply upset by Stephen’s untimely death. He was enormously talented and I very much enjoyed working with him on _Joseph and the Technicolour Dreamcoat_ and the Boyzone hit ‘No Matter What’ – my biggest selling single.”

Madeleine and I got to know him well over the years entertaining him at our Sydmonton Festival. His death is a great loss to the musical world.”
