Paco de Lucia, one of the world's greatest guitarists, has died in Mexico.Francisco Sanchez Gomez, de Lucia's birth name, was best-known for flamenco but also experimented with other genres. One of his most famous recordings, "Friday Night in San Francisco," was recorded with guitarists John McLaughlin and Al Di Meola in 1981 .Born Dec. 21, 1947, he was immersed in flamenco music from an early age, with his father, Antonio, and two brothers playing guitar and a third brother an accomplished flamenco singer.Although this drew criticism from flamenco purists, de Lucia defined his own sound by staying true to his flamenco roots no matter what he played.
