In Memory of Paco De Lucia

your music inspired
hearts – downtrod  or joyous
where have you gone

I just read on Frizztext’s Flickr Comments that Paco De Lucia, one of my favorite Spanish Flamingo guitarists has passed on. I’ve listened to his music for years since I discovered him for myself back in the 70s.  There are just so few Flaming guitarists of his calibre.

I’ve copied this from Euronews:

“The son of a flamenco guitarist he was born Francisco Sanchez Gomez in Algeciras in south east Spain. It’s reported he was in Mexico where he had lived for five years in the late 1990s relaxing on the beach with members of his family when he suffered a heart attack.”

He was 66 years old.
