    I just heard the news that Paco de Lucia died today. He was at the beach in Cancun (he lived in the area) with his family and apparently had a heart attack.

    For those unfamiliar with him, he was the greatest guitarist of all time, as well as my favorite. A true Master with a capital M.

    Here is a taste of his music:


    His death has really effected me and I'm shaking as I type this.

    That is really, really sad, and a great musical loss for our world.
