    I just saw this news and was very saddened to read it. Probably the greatest guitarist in the world, Paco De Lucía was head and shoulders above most of his contemporaries. His work with Camarón de la Isla is legendary and probably unlikely ever to be bettered. I know that flamenco is a bit of an acquired taste, especially for Anglo-Saxons, but I defy anyone not to find something impressive in this:

    You guys must feel kind of how we did when 2Pac died. RIP Mr. Paco.

    I was thinking along the lines of Johnny Cash.

    With 2Pac it took a few years to sink in because he was still putting out albums.
