His last public performance was at the opening ceremonies of the 2006 Turin Winter Olympics. It was pre-recorded and lip-synched (apparently he was not up to sub-freezing performance anymore, and knew his voice wouldn’t be up to the challenge), but he still rocked the house and got the biggest applause of the whole ceremony. A few months later he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and died in September 2007.
