RIP Manitas de Plata

The great French gypsy flamenco guitarist Manitas de Plata died on November 5..
I never heard him play but I remember when he appeared at Newcastle City Hall circa 1964. Those friends of mine who attended the concert spoke of it as awesome and this was before "awesome" became the throwaway word it is today.
Truly a great talent.
He was 93 years old.
Rest In Peace.
