A moment of silence please...



Although he was not my favorite operatic singer, no one could deny that he is, was probably the most well-known of them all. Who could not know Pavarotti with a name like that? Who couldn't recognize his admittedly bulky form clad in a tuxedo with that big black beard and beetling eyebrows? He looked like a cartoon caricature brought to life. And when he chose to open up that big voice of his... you could get blown away.

I can hear the resounding strains of Nessun Dorma faintly in the back of my head.
