Yeah, this made me sad. Like a part of my childhood has disappeared.

Me too. I actually did realize he was as old as he was.

I had the chance to see him in concert several years ago when I was a much younger know-it-all than I am now. At the time I didn't really know who he was but went to the concert anyway, I think with my mother. Needless to say I was blown away as my arrogant ears were opened to the vocal ability of someone other than Joey Ramone or Paul Westerberg. Much the same experience I had while watching Lady Sings the Blues.

He was truly a treasure and will be sorely missed. But we are all much better off for having heard him.

RIP.

Thanks for informing me! You did you PSA for the day.

I'm sure he had a good life, and 71 isn't that old, but I think he did enjoy life.

Such a voice.
He will be missed.

Hi Attila,
Luciano Pavarotti captured the hearts of the public with his marvelous voice. One of his greatest fortes was that he appealed to a wide assortment of music aficionados. He will be missed.

Thanks for posting this video of him singing…
