The new GENERAL HOSPITAL opening that debuted this week isn't the only change in the soap's music department. Executive producer Frank Valentini announced via Twitter that Paul Glass -- who served as the musical director on ONE LIFE TO LIVE from 1999 until the show's finale -- has joined the GH family. A spokesperson for ABC confirms that multiple Emmy winner RC Cates -- pictured above with Steve Burton (Jason) -- is out after more than 20 years as GH's music supervisor. In addition to working on the mothership, Cates helmed the music departments at GENERAL HOSPITAL: NIGHT SHIFT and PORT CHARLES.
As for the new truncated credits that debuted earlier this week, a show rep says "The opening is a work in progress. There's a brand new one in the works, which you'll see in good time."
