Don't Go

Just got the sad news that the man with the fabulous guitar is no more. Paco De Lucía, virtuoso from Algeciras, doctor honoris causa at the University of Cádiz and at the Berklee College of Music, was only 66. His later work often proved a bit too fusion for me, but his early solo albums and of course his work with the late great Camarón de la Isla are the stuff of flamenco legend. Miss him.
