    He was an accountant before turning to music.
    He almost became a member of 10CC, but the band's management declined to put him on retainer.
    He never learned to read music.
    The Alan Parsons Project broke up over his decision to turn 'Freudiana' into a musical.
    He released an album, 'Eric Woolfson Sings the Alan Parsons Project That Never Was' (2009), consisting of songs he wrote that had been rejected by Parsons.
    He and his wife Hazel were married for 40 years until his death.
    He auditioned as a songwriter for Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham, who declared, 'You're a fucking genius!'
    He managed 'Kung Fu Fighting' singer Carl Douglas.
    Although he did not consider himself a 'real' singer, he provided the lead vocal on several of the Project's biggest hits, including 'Time,' 'Don't Answer Me' and 'Eye in the Sky.'
