Pavarotti R.I.P.

So farewell then, Fat Lucy. In between all the references to the World Cup, and possibly the odd reference to the fact that he was an actual proper opera singer who sang whole operas, on stage (not something certain other "opera singers" can claim to have done), let us not forget his abiding fondess for elephants.

The Grauniad obituary makes some interesting points about Pavarotti's career as a marketing phenomenon (which is not to detract from his artistic achievment), and also his position as probably the last of what is effectively a dead tradition.
