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.
