Spanish legend Paco de Lucía suffered a heartattack and died on Tuesday whilst on holiday in Mexico with his family. A genius of the Flamenco style and responsible for infusing the genre with unbridled passion, incredible technique and a modern approach that kept the spirit of the tradition, he is a great loss to the art of guitar – arguably one of the greatest guitarists that ever lived.
Paco de Lucía (21 December 1947 – 25 February 2014) RIP.
