Today we mourn the loss of one of the world’s greatest. May you rest in peace Paco de Lucia. ‘Friday Night In San Francisco’ remains one of the most influential albums of all time for me as a guitarist. John Petrucci (Dream Theater)
My dear friend has passed and we will never forget his important legacy! My years with Paco were amazing and unforgettable! I will miss him terribly:(( RIP Paco. Al Di Meola
Saluting Paco de Lucia. A wonderful guitarist has passed away at the age of 66. A true master of the Spanish guitar – we salute you, Paco, and treasure the legacy you have given us. RIP Paco de Lucia. Brian May (Queen)
Paco De Lucia reinvented flamenco, and was one of the finest guitarist ever!
I was able to see him perform live several times, each time he showed his utter mastery of the instrument and command of his ideas. So many of us will miss him dearly.
