That's too bad. I'm not much of a opera fan but I used to enjoy watching him and some of his cohorts sing every now and then when they were TV. He had some health issues in the not too distant past, IIRC.

I'll be honest, I had no idea who he was until I saw him on Saturday night live in what was it the early 90's? Since then whenever I could see him on TV and such I watched. ITs the only opera I have ever really gotten into (except the stuff my dad used to listen to on 8 track in the late 70's in our cars) and the guy was friggen amazing. I'll miss him!

That fat boy could bust an aria...

OK, bad time for levity I suppose. I was never a fan of the whole Italian school of opera (prefer Marriage Of Figaro myself) but Pavarotti's voice was undeniably amazing. Especially in the early years. He was one of the greats.

I had the good fortune to hear him in person several times in the 1970s and 1980s: in recital, at Lyric Opera of Chicago, and in concert with the Chicago Symphony. [And I didn't hear him when he (frequently) canceled in the later years.]

Cancer has taken a lot of great people. I'm sorry I will never hear his voice in person.
