RIP Pavarotti

September 6, 2007 at 6:42 AM

The great Italian tenor Luciano Pavarotti has died of pancreatic cancer at age 71. He is remembered as an opera star, a member of the Three Tenors, and a collaborator with such popular groups as the Spice Girls. Pavarotti retired from the opera stage in 2004 but was on a farewell tour of concerts in 2006 when he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and underwent immediate surgery.
