    I've heard Hampson sing a couple of times - he's a very disciplined and dignified singer, indeed.

    Whenever I see a photo of Hampson it reminds me of a little story which Luca Pisaroni told. Luca was very taken with Hampson's daughter, Catherine and asked Hampson for a formal introduction. Hampson just said 'Don't even think of it!' Happily Luca proved his worth and he and Catherine are now happily married.

    I would say that Hampson just seems too nice for Bond but then I remember his scary portrayal as Scarpia and change my mind.

    Listening him in Don Carlos brings tears to my eyes...
