  • I admired his voice, it was amazing and I liked his "hits" but I would have to say no as an answer to this question. However it is a huge loss for the music world.
  • I am very sad to hear that, he was one of my favourites. My sympathies to his family.
  • No, his music turned people into frogs.
  • Not particularly ..but I am sorry to hear about it.
  • No, but it's sad when anyone dies
  • It is a great loss he had a truly amasing voice! Yes I enjoyed listening to him sing!!
  • He was of superior talent and anyone who appreciates a beautiful singing voice will miss him. I will.
  • It is unfortunate that one with his talent dies.I personally do not listen to opera.
  • His rendition of Nessun Dorma was flawless. RIP
  • sad to hear and I liked some of his songs but I wouldn't say I was a fan
  • What a shame he had a beautiful voice and i think the world of opera will miss him,im not a lover of opera but i did like his voice.
  • I admired the person and the voice, he also left us with a great restaurant in the outskirts of his native city to which he gave so much. Grazie Luciano e riposa in pace.
  • Yes indeed. It's a major loss to the music world. I think he was truly one of the greatest tenors of all time.
  • When he first came on the scene many years ago his voice was shatteringly magnificent and unique..he was one of a kind. May he rest in peace.
  • Once he grabbed my crotch. But aside from that, I have to give him mad props for his amazing squillo. I think he was once of the first to find the magic combination of squillo and just the right threads of chest-a really dynamic balance (is that an oxymoron?!?!) A phenomenal artist, despite the fact that he couldn't read music for shit, which always used to make me giggle. He, like Domingo, launched many great careers....ok so mostly the careers of women who slept with him who otherwise would never have been given the time of day by any general director ever...but it was nice of him to pay them back for their efforts. All in all, I think he changed the medium and that's a real feat for an institution as stuck in it's ways as opera.
  • Not a great fan of opera, but thought he was an amazing man, with a fabulous voice.
  • Though not a fan of opera, he did have an amazing voice. His death is a loss to the music world.
  • The aria Nessun Dorma (from the Puccini Opera Turandot) was used as the "theme" music to the soccer world cup held in Italy in 1990, the version used was sung by Luciano Pavarotti - the hairs stood out on the back of my neck and tears welled up in my eyes when i first heard it. It was so beautiful, so heartfelt, I could not conceive that this was a natural voice. I have heard it many times in the years since, but the wonder has never left me. I was greatly saddened to learn of his death early this morning.His performances gave me pleasure, and access to opera where i had previously no interest.
  • I am not a fan of opera at all, but I did appreciate his talent. He was an amazing artist. RIP ♥
  • I'm not fanatic about him, but I occasionally listened to him.
  • I heard that. I am saddened as he was a great living voice. I remember well the operas that he made his own. And I remember his helping others to find the opera singer in them. I will miss him. On his website is an interesting quote from U2's Bono. It says, "Some people can sing opera, Luciano Pavarotti was an opera," Bono wrote. "No one could inhabit those acrobatic words and melodies like him. "He lived the songs, his opera was a great mash of joy and sadness; surreal and earthy at the same time; a great volcano of a man who sang fire but spilled over with a love of life in all its complexity, a great and generous friend."
  • I enjoyed him on the rare occasion. The three tenors will never be again. The fat lady has already sung her eulogy.
  • How sad, he was like a gentle giant with the voice of angels... im not into opera but i could listen to him any day of the week... he will be sadly missed all over the world. RIP xx
  • Not really, I dont much like opera, all that wailing and foreign language, but did witness him perform that Nessum Dorma song and its powerful and moving stuff!
  • Such a pity I never listened to him more! I'm sure I would of adored his voice, and I'm sure I will when I pick up more Opera - I'm a fan, you know. >< And I know that sounds like scarcasm, but trust me, the man had the voice of God.
  • I loved his music, such a beautiful voice. I get tears in my eyes every time I hear him sing!
  • he was an amazing talent. i don't like opera but i can tell his voice was beautiful. it was so weird, the morning i found out he died i had to write an english essay on a novel entitled 'nessun dorma'.
  • The thing I admired about him was when he was willing to sing on songs by rock & roll acts like 'Miss Sarajevo' with U2 and 'Holy Mother' by Eric Clapton.
  • Yes. I'm not a big fan of opera music, but I loved to listen to him. He was my favorite of The Three Tenors.
  • He was one of my favorites since I was a little kid. My mom always thought it was weird that I listened to Opera instead of pop
  • I was not a fan of his music, but he had the greatest voice that I have ever heard Only a few if any can hit the notes and ranges he could, Chris Cornell could back in his old soundgarden days
  • I love Pavorotti; whose music has uplifted me, even through sad sounding songs. RIP
