LONDON, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- "I only heard of Marvin's death this morning whilst I was on holiday. I am still reeling. I saw him but six months ago.  Although I knew Marvin before, I became a friend through a USA TV chat show when he was at the height of his Chorus Line, witty performing fame. No one knew who I was. Marvin went to the piano, played some of my melodies and said to the studio audience, 'This is who Andrew is.'  No one other than a brilliant talent and a supremely generous composer and performer would have done that. We became firm friends ever since. Farewell Singular Sensation."
