Mother, We Are Poor Tonight

"The word 'commercial' is exactly what we want. We've reached 1.5 billion people with opera. If you want to use the word 'commercial,' or something more derogatory, we don't care. Use whatever you want."
--Luciano Pavarotti, 1935-2007

Bill Monroe would have loved you, Signore.

Nice tribute, Mando. You know how I love Bono.

It was a tough call...I also know how you love Nessun Dorma. Who doesn't? Sigh.
