Lookalike looks to his laurels.
Barry, of Holyhead Road, Coundon, set up entertainment company LRD Productions after spending 25 years as a Coventry policeman.
He said: "There was nobody like Luciano Pavarotti. I probably receive up to 25 bookings a year to appear as him, even though I can only mime to his music.
"He made opera accessible to everybody - nobody has matched his voice for such depth and the way he had of putting things over.
"He will be greatly missed."
Barry added: "People last saw me at the Longford Festival when I was miming to Nessun Dorma and O Sole Mio, but I don't know whether I will be carrying on.
"It's a strange situation - playing Pavarotti was something I did more for love than anything else. It was a small part of my business but he will be such a great loss to the world."
