One of the world's most famous singers, Luciano Pavarotti, the most interesting of The Three Tenors, has just died. He was 71.

Pavarotti had been treated for pancreatic cancer since last year, which is probably what did him in today.

His weight problems led to heath issues, but it didn't stop him from being loved by the ladies. A few years back he divorced his wife of 37 years for a woman 35 years younger than he, despite Italy's tough stance on divorce. He married the woman in 2003.

Here he sings with Barry White.
