My name is Francisco Sánchez Gómez, alias Paco de Lucía, and I’m a guitarist.
…If you would invite him to your home
To eat: soups and broths (anything with a spoon)
To drink: red wine
Don’t talk to him about: guitar, his nightmare
On the stereo: Camarón “the greatest genius I’ve known”
After lunch: a movie by Billy Wilder or Kieslowski’s Three Colours trilogy
A book to lend him: Any of Oscar Wilde’s. No philosophical book because he says that after reading Ortega y Gasset’s work he ended up analysing everything and thus losing his sense of humour.
