Bio / info
Paco de Lucía, born Francisco Gustavo Sánchez Gomes (21 December 1947 – 25 February 2014), was a Spanish flamenco composer, guitarist and producer. A leading proponent of the New Flamenco style, he helped legitimize flamenco among the establishment in Spain, and was one of the first flamenco guitarists to also successfully cross over into other genres of music such as classical and jazz. Richard Chapman and Eric Clapton, authors of Guitar: Music, History, Players, describe de Lucía as a "titanic figure in the world of flamenco guitar", and Dennis Koster, author of Guitar Atlas, Flamenco, has referred to de Lucía as "one of history's greatest guitarists." His collaborations with guitarists John McLaughlin, Al Di Meola, and Larry Coryell starting in the late 1970s saw him gain wide popularity outside his native Spain.
