Paco de Lucia R.I.P.

Famed guitarist Paco de Lucia passed away yesterday of a heart attack in Mexico. Just 66 years old, Paco de Lucia had awed audiences with his lightning fast flamenco rhythms and finger dexterity since recording his first record at the age of 14 with his brother Pepe. Perhaps most famous in the United States for his album Friday Night in San Francisco with John McLaughlin and Al Di Meola, which sold over 1 million copies and generated a significant interest in flamenco music in America and Europe. R.I.P.

That's horrible news. I was fortunate to see him play live once.
