    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/6981032.stm :(

    BBC also have an obituary at: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/5158416.stm
    - which was "Last Updated: Friday, 7 July 2006, 14:19 GMT 15:19 UK" :confused:
    ... presumably a mock obituary from last year when he was very ill.
    EDIT - has since been updated this morning with specifics about his battle with cancer of the pancreas.

    His performance with Passengers (= U2 + Brian Eno) on Miss Sarajevo always gives me goosebumps
    - this was from his home city of Modena (also with the late Michael Kamen conducting):

    He brought opera to many people, and was a legend amongst opera lovers, not just amongst the general masses. He was one of the all time great tenors.

    A sad loss for all music lovers.

    Opera has never been in my music bag, but the guy is legend in his field and must be one of the main inspiration for most of not all young tenors.

    I cannot tell you how sad I am at this news. He was/is by far my favourite ever artist.

    His voice had to ability to really reach inside your soul and make you feel the emotion of whatever he was singing.

    He was THE voice of a millenia. RIP

    I think the censor's scissor got carried away with your post quoting a post which was subsequently snipped!
