Talking Pavarotti dies at 71

Opera is not my thing, but I loved this guys voice. He was amazing at the Italian Olympics last year. What a night.

My wife and I tried to see him last summer in England, but he canceled.

Pancreatic Cancer is almost impossible to beat. It took my first girlfriend at 35.

I saw him once with the other 2 tenors (the big 3 ).
was incredible.

71 was his age, and he got famous when he sang in 1990 at the footballworldchampionship-opening ceremony in Italy.

nice fat manthumbsup

Tenor Luciano Pavarotti dead at 71 - CNN.com

RIP big man

11 minute ovation when he was last at the metropolitan opera New York

Nessun dorma

Il principe ignoto Nessun dorma!... Tu pure, o Principessa,Nella tua fredda stanzaGuardi le stelleChe tremano d'amore e di speranza.Ma il mio mistero è chiuso in me,Il nome mio nessun saprà!Solo quando la luce splenderà,Sulla tua bocca lo dirò fremente!...Ed il mio bacio scioglierà il silenzioChe ti fa mia!...
Voci di donne
Il nome suo nessun saprà...E noi dovremo, ahimè, morir!...
Il principe ignoto
Dilegua, o notte!... Tramontate, stelle!...All'alba vincerò! vincerò! vincerò!...

Translation

The Prince
Nobody shall sleep!... Nobody shall sleep! Even you, o Princess, in your cold room, watch the stars, that tremble with love and with hope.
But my secret is hidden within me, my name no one shall know... No!...No!... On your mouth I will tell it when the light shines.
And my kiss will dissolve the silence that makes you mine!...
The Chorus of women No one will know his name and we must, alas, die.
The Prince Vanish, o night! Set, stars! Set, stars! At dawn, I will win! I will win! I will win!

Agreed. I've never been a fan of opera, but he had a way of appealing to a much broader audience and wasn't afraid to have fun with what he did or who he was.

His voice has touched the world and has left behind a legacy of crowning musical achievements for many to enjoy until time ends.

RIP Mr. Pavarotti, and thank you for enriching the world with you’re voice you will be sadly missed by millions.

Read U2 Bono Farwell to the late Pavarotti.

This guy was a pop star among operatic tenors. I mean that in a good way.

He will be missed.

Pavarotti

Yes a truely great artist. And apart from his art as an interpretator, I think just about anybody interested in sound can't be indifferent to the "instrument" Pavarotti. A miracule of nature! And to think that he sold more than 100,000,000 albums!!

Even classic FM UK is celebrating the man “Luciano Pavarotti” via a wonderful musical experience. If you can tune in by clicking listen here and depending on where you live in the world counts as its kinder restricted to certain parts.

Pavarotti said back in the mid 70's that opera singers can't be marketed like coca cola........ but boy did they try with him and the other big two throughout the next couple of decades. But it was such an extraordinary voice that it transcended the hype. They have been trying for god only knows how long to find the next pavarotti....or cash cow. But there never will be another. RIP.....maestro. An inspiration to millions.

The great man was a human being who knew how to give, who loved his audience and other people. He was real and very dedicated to his art.

He turned out to be the best ambassador for classical music that we have in our lifetime and I doubt we'll see another like him.

I thank God for his gift to us and for the life of the maestro. Oh, that sound

so am i.
well, i am happy to say a friend of mine survived his pancreatic cancer... it does have a 90% mortality rate... i guess he was one of the lucky 10%, he did have to remove a large part of his digestive system, has become a diabetic, and has had pancreatitis too, but he´s out of danger and back to working as a gigging musician.

Wow.... well anything is possible. It's been proven again! I hope he continues to thrive. Jennifer had been burping for 4 years, so by the time they saw it she was far along. Then she refused to boost her immune system with natural help, accepting the western medical approach until she was so sick from the chemo that it didn't matter anymore. Her mom had died when she was 20 so she gave up early, truthfully she never fought it as hard as she could.
