Eric with Pavarotti....Holy Mother

I had to send the video on TJ's blog to Mike, as I was so excited about it. I'd never heard it before...ever! That's how "out of the proverbial loop" I've been for some years. And just got this email back from my "pilgrimage pal."

From Mike Aquilina:

I've always liked that song. He wrote it for Richard Manuel of The Band, after Manuel's suicide. Very sad. May he rest in peace. Interesting that when Pavarotti sang "Holy Mother," he changed the lyric. The Eyetalian's version is the orthodox one. ~ Mike

Thanks Mike. You're incredible!
