Charity may begin at home, but it came close to ending on a concert stage in Italy last fall. Pavarotti assembled a strange assortment of ”friends”— including Sting, the Neville Brothers, and Italian pop singer Lucio Dalla— to raise money to fight a blood disorder called Thalassemia. Then, as Pavarotti & Friends proves, nearly all of the artists in the ”concert” had the audacity to lip-synch. The tenor later apologized, but for all his good intentions, you could pave a lot of roads to hell with this tape.
