Andrea Bocelli/ Elton John concert
I read Jim Wallace's letter with some surprise. I didn't realise that dinosaurs were not extinct after all !! I remember some years ago that the opera singer Montserrat Caballé recorded a song called Barcelona with Freddy Mercury and Queen.
It may not have been everybody's choice but it was good music and that's what counts.
Bocelli is certainly a good singer but Elton John is also a brilliant musician.
His work is mostly pop but he can play classical piano and is an extremely competent composer.
Frankly, he is almost certainly more gifted than Bocelli and I write that as a lover of both classical and some pop music.
I, for one, would love to be able to hear that concert and I don't think Jim Wallace should rush to judgement but should hear for himself and THEN, if he so wishes, he could give us the benefit of his opinions.
