Eadie Del Rubio,one-third of "3 Gals 3 Guitars" with her identical triplet sisters, died Monday of cancer in Los Angeles. She was believed to be in her 70s.
She and her sisters, Milly and Elena, performed their music as a trio for the last 60 years, including appearances on the television shows "Ellen," "The Golden Girls," "Full House," "Married With Children" and "Pee-Wee's Playhouse."
In addition to live performances, the guitar-playing siblings also produced three albums: "Jingle Belles," "3 Gals, 3 Guitars" and "Whip It."
Francesco Siciliani,85, one of the leading opera impresarios of 20th century Italy, died Tuesday of complications from lung cancer in Rome. Mr. Siciliani, who once said he learned to read notes before words, was a musical prodigy and composer. But his fame came from helping revive Italy's musical scene after World War II and leading some of its great opera houses, including Milan's La Scala, the San Carlo theater in Naples and the Florence opera.
