Just picked up on the late News
***LUCIANO PAVAROTTI has died***
He had Pancreatic Cancer, so was
probably ill for a very short time.
This is a big blow for opera lovers.
Pavarotti was one of the THREE TENORS
and spent his later years working to
bring opera into the mainstream of music.
He also performed and recorded with many
Pop Artists, in Italy as well as in other
countries around the World.
Goodbye to a Big man with a Big Heart....

I heard earlier that he was critical. My mom-in-law will be crushed. She fell in love with him in that movie he made and has all his CDs. I'll have to call and comfort her in the morning. My sympathies to his fans.

May Luciano Pavarotti rest in peace, and may God bless his family and all of the people as they mourn his death. He was a great and talented musician.

The final curtain call will be HUGE at his funeral. A true gift that the music world will miss. RIP Pav

I didn't have to call my mother-in-law. She called me crying when she saw the news this morning. Pancreatic cancer is a dreadful way to go. I've been watching the eulogies on TV this morning. It's a terrible blow for opera - no other singer has had his impact since Caruso. He'll be greatly missed and long remembered.

Yes, a tragedy. I will always remember his beautiful theme song Nessun Dorma for the World Cup 1990, which provded a lovely atmosphere. (The song also has special memories with a friend who too has sadly passed away).

It is very difficult to believe. I have just bought a double CD for my 2 year old son to introduce him to this great voice. His recordings will stay with us for a very long time. It was probably the greatest loss of a celebrity persona for me. He was really a household name for so many people around the world.

An awful way to go...
The big man will be remembered, more than anything, for taking away the elitist nature of opera and making it accessible - and enjoyable - to people who had never even thought about it before.
And so-called opera purists didn't like him, which made him even better imho!

Some nice tributes & links at the following:

We have definately lost a legend! Luciano had a beautiful voice that was so full of emotion. My heart goes out to his family.

Go to youtube, and while listening to and watching his recordings see what people from all over the world had written. Amazing!
