Devizes Melting Pot

“Protection. Conservation. Restriction. Deep ecology. Give me deep technology any day. They don't scare me. "I'm damned if I'll crawl, my children's children crawl on the earth in some kind a fuckin' harmony with the environment. Yeah, till the next ice age or the next asteroid impact." (Moh Kohn, The Star Fraction)/ "This is the fight between God and the Devil. If His Grace is with God, he must join me, if he is for the Devil he must fight me. There is no third way" King Gustavus Adolphus

Placido Domingo Turns 70

He leads two opera houses, has recorded countless albums, conducts and continues to sing with an astounding voice: Placido Domingo, the musical multi-talent, looks back at an outstanding career.

Placido Domingo, who was born in Madrid on January 21, 1941, learned to love of music before he could talk; his parents were singers of traditional Spanish zarzuelas. Following the Domingo family's move to Mexico when Placido was eight, the young man went on to study piano and conducting, and eventually voice, at Mexico City's Conservatory of Music.

He made his operatic debut as leading tenor in Monterrey at the age of 20 - as Alfredo in Verdi's "La Traviata."
