    He had to bow out halfway through the opera.
    He later blamed the air conditioning for his terrible performance.
    Although Italian, he demonstrated against Axis powers during World War II and wound up in a Nazi P.O.W. camp.
    He will not bad mouth fellow singers.
    He says the life of a performer isn't as fun as it seems.
    He is an accomplished voice teacher.
