Died before I could ever listen to him live....sigh...rest in peace maestro

And coincidentally, yesterday I was listening to his rendition of Verdi's Requiem.

I was just thinking we've still got all the recordings.  Haha.  Kind of overlooks the person, but the recordings are here whether the person is dead or alive.

Its kinda sad to think someone dies and the world just doesn't give a damn. Keep spinning alright

Yep, but we still have the recordings.  That's the only way I knew of him.

And, even though he's dead, if you record a piece he recorded, you'll still be competing against him for sales and ears.  Amusing.
