Sorry, friends, but no rock blogging today. For those of you who missed the news, Beverly Sills died on July 2, 2007.
Like many, many people, I first encountered the joy of opera watching Sills on TV. More than anyone else, she was responsible for demystifying operatic culture and inviting a mass audience into a world of beauty without a hint of condescension or pedantry. Her humor and gallantry have been and will remain as legendary as her beautiful voice.
