Composer Nicholas Lloyd Webber, son of Andrew Lloyd Webber, has died aged 43

Broadway maestro Andrew Lloyd Webber returns


Nicholas Lloyd Webber, the Grammy-nominated composer, record producer and eldest son of Andrew Lloyd Webber, died Saturday in England after a long battle with gastric cancer and pneumonia. He was 43.

“His entire family is together and we are all completely devastated,” Weber, 75, said in a statement emailed to CBS News by a representative. “Thank you for all your thoughtfulness during this difficult time.”

Nicholas died at a hospital in the south-central English city of Basingstoke, his father said. Weber, the famous composer, missed Thursday’s Broadway opening of his “Bad Cinderella” to be by his son’s side with other loved ones.

Nicholas is best known for his work on BBC One’s “Love, Lies and Records”, which was based on the book “The Little Prince”. He also worked on his father’s 2021 “Cinderella,” earning a Grammy nod for Best Musical Theater Album.

Nicholas is the son of Webber and his first wife Sarah Hugill, who is also the mother of his older sister Imogen. The senior Weber has four other children.
