Ok so I'm a big fan of Elfman and curious about a few things I read / heard.
He's mentioned in various interviews that people in the industry , at least back in the day, used to rumor that he did not write his own scores and had ghostwriters? Or maybe meant orchestrating it? Because he had no formal training and came from a rock band, etc.
