James Levine,  the legendary maestro of the Metropolitan opera has now died at the age of 77.

Levine’s career had been recently derailed and rocked by scandal after he was accused of molesting a teenager for years.

As The New York Post reports:

James Levine, the former longtime maestro of the Metropolitan Opera, has died in Palm Springs, Calif., at the age of 77, according to a report.

His March 9 death was confirmed Wednesday morning by his physician, Dr. Len Horovitz, the New York Times reported.

The cause of death was not immediately released.

Levine — who was maestro of the Metropolitan Opera for more than 40 years — was one of the most admired conductors in the world until allegations of sexual abuse and harassment derailed his career.

This person does not deserve any honorable mention. Every day true heroes die and the media doesn’t even mention them. Why do we care about this man? Start honoring the true heroes in the world! All I can say is good riddance, except he lived his last days in wealth in the NY winter village.
