This is a sad day for me personally. I love Paco De Lucia. His flamenco gave me purpose, gave me my passion, and inspired me throughout my life and the music I played.
Thank you Paco. Thank you for your love of flamenco music and all with a simple smile, a quirk of the lips and the eyes of an angel.
Gracias por tu corazón y amor.

RIP Paco.
24/12/1947 – 26/2/2014.
66 years.
Too young a death for one so talented as he, who had so much joyful music still to give the world.

When will our government extend the unemployment benefits to the two million plus workers which had loss their benefits late December of 2013? While the Republicans are playing politics, these people are facing eviction, hunger, and hopelessness. It’s truly a shame that these same Republicans who claim to stand for “family Values”, have shown themselves to be severely lacking in common decency and values whatsoever. I hope that the public will remember the Republican callousness at next election, and vote them out of office.

I’m stunned.

Although I performed for 40 years on classical guitar, I had the greatest respect and admiration for him and his music, and he was universally admired (and envied) among my guitarist friends. He was an incandescent guitarist.

What a legend and I’m certain most people have never heard of him.
