Had Jim been the lyricist for Phantom....

So hereís a what if. Itís well known Jim was originally sought out to write the lyrics for Phantom of the Opera but had to decline due to prior obligations. My question, how do you feel Jimís career wouldíve changed had he been able to write the lyrics for Phantom as initially intended?

Now there are a lot of different dynamics at play here such as, would the musical still have been as successful? Letís say in this hypothetical situation itís still just as successful. How does it impact Jimís career? Instantly, I feel that some variation of Neverland/Bat out of Hell the Musical would have gotten produced much quicker. Another thing to ponder, does Jim still reunite with Meat for Bat II? Does this make Jim such a hot commodity that many other artists are seeking him out to collaborate with? Does Meat Loaf give interviews insisting many of the songs from Phantom were originally written for him (more of a comedic suggestion there.) What else can anyone think of?

I understand there are those who may feel itís a little pointless to wonder about this, however I feel that as a Jim fan itís disappointing to know he couldíve been involved in the longest running musical in Broadway history and instead was involved with one of the shortest.
