A Life In Music Is A Life Beautifully Spent

Luciano Pavarotti (1935-2007)

Music lost one for the ages yesterday. I don't think folks come to TTT for updates from the world of opera, but I spent a few years at Ole Miss singing it, and still call myself something of a fan. In those days, singing tenor was almost like an athletic endeavor for me, and Pavarotti was like Michael Jordan. Not for nothing was he called The King of the High C's. Goodbye, Maestro.
