Message from John McLaughlin on the Passing of Paco De Lucia
“Paco was a real man. Real in the sense of true; to himself, to his music and to everyone else.
A man in that he was passionate, but had true compassion and deep understanding of the human condition. All this was revealed in his music and in his marvelous guitar playing. To have worked and played music with him is one the greatest blessings in my life. To say I will miss him is an understatement. In the place where he lived in my heart, there is now an emptiness that will stay with me till I join him."
