    Default Pavarotti Hospitalized

    Luciano Pavarotti was hospitalized in Italy today. He was admitted for a "high fever" and although an Italian newspaper says pneumonia, the tenor's doctor hasn't commented.

    I wish him good health!
    Pace e Gioia sia con voi!!
    Gioia e Pace per mill'anni!!
    Gioia e Pace, pace e gioia!!
    Gioia e Pace ben di core!!

    Basta! Basta! Basta! per pieta!!

    Heard this on the radio earlier today. We seem to be losing quite a few legends this year.

    I didn't know Pavarotti was 71. That's pretty old! Hair dye I suppose...

    Yes, but with his age and already poor, deteriorating health, it sadly is probably only a matter of time :[

    I choose not to write him off just yet, and hopefully not for a long while.

    Reminds me of an episode of Seinfeld where Elaine gets a poster of Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras ('that other guy,' as they refer to him because they can't remember his name) and has it autographed by 'that other guy' for a conductor friend, because she knows he likes him. When the conductor gets the poster, he says "wow, a poster of my favourite tenor and two other guys!"
