Paco was one of the very first artists I saw when I moved here. Walking past the Icehouse with some friends back in '94 and I heard his music. Already being a fan of Flamenco and making attempts at practicing it, I had to go find that music. I've never forgotten that night or any other that I watched and listened to him play.
Paco was also a very accomplished athlete as well as a musician. I had locker right next to his at the YMCA. I was devastated to hear the "fun police" had come for him several years back. It was a long and arduous battle with little chance of ever winning
The "alien" is such a cruel and non-descriminating thing to face. He spares very few.
Connie, I am so very sorry for you loss. I'm also sorry that the rest of us lose out too. Nobody can ever take his place. My deepest condolances and prayers are there for you.
