Well that is the sad thing about Pavarotti. For most people he was one of the "Three Tenors Act" like a circus act and not remembered for the incredible singer he was for decades before.Sad. Now it's up to Placido Domingo and the other guy to pick up the slack.
Well, he was honoured as one of the greatest fundraisers for the UN Refugee Council, but he also fiddled his taxes, was fined millions by the Italian government, had a series of affairs (in a way that upset much of the italian public, where affairs are a way of life), was branded a traitor to the italian nation, got thrown out of the Chicago opera (they swore never to work again with him) cos of his unreliablity and lateness, and pissed off many other people in the industry with his unreliablity.Just a stunning voice and by all accounts, a gentleman.
Sure did. He had the voice, but have you seen his backstage rider? Google it, he was definitely a diva in both senses of the word. Er, except that he was a dude. And a womanizer at that.Surely you did not mean that literally...
Then why did you click on the thread?Uh who?
The reason I ask is that by definition, a diva is a woman. Maybe it was the beard that fooled me.Sure did. He had the voice, but have you seen his backstage rider? Google it, he was definitely a diva in both senses of the word. Er, except that he was a dude. And a womanizer at that.
