I just wanted to thank all of you from all over the world for your
messages of appreciation of my work over the past years. Ever since
I did the role of Judas in the new filmed version of Jesus Christ
Super Star, I've received countless e-mails from enthusiastic fans
and it felt wonderful to read them. Unfortunately there were so many
that I couldn't respond to a lot of you.
I didn't get much time to reply to you all and to say thank you for
all your support and interest. Your messages of love give me a
