He’s #1 Disney composer, and one of the pioneers in getting Disney out of the Dark ages along with Glen Keane and John Lasseter. His long time friend Howard Ashman was the Lyricist to most of the work Alan has done, He thinks his best work is at The Hunchback of Notre Dame and that he topped himself in that movie, he holds the record of the most Academy Awarded man alive with 8 Oscars with another 11 nominations.
I realized that ‘Team A’ includes Glen Keane and Alan Menken, HELL YEAH :D
