It's Verdi's birthday!

Today is the birthday of opera composer Guiseppe Verdi. Here's a nice link to visit to celebrate this operatic titan, this master of melody. [Hat tip, ironically, Patti Smith.]

If you can't find something in Verdi to add joy to your life then it's too late, you're already dead.

LINK: Viva Verdi!

Music, Heroes

  1. Every time I listen to Verdi I remember being in Italy in 1976 and shown the lamp post under which he supposedly wrote one of his early operas. Tyhen I think of the whinging parasites who call themselves artists who live better than I do while sponging off the tax payer to support their lifestyle and profession. They should be like Verdi and make it or starve.
