Richard Hartley

It took us three years and five trips to London to finally meet Richard Hartley. Being part of the „Original Five“, who actually created the musical and later the movie, it was an utmost pleasure to spend an afternoon with Richard, talking about the early concept of the show, the lyrics and rough chords from Richard O’Brien, which Richard Hartley put into unforgettable masterpieces of music, the production of the show and later the movie, Meat Loaf’s ambition to sing in each and every single song, and why „Sword of Damokles“ did not make it onto the soundtrack. album.
