Subject: RE: Obit: Manitas de Plata, old 'silver fingers'
When I saw Manitas - he had a troupe of flamenco players and dancers with him. i don't recall any of the dancers saying.....ooooer, i can't follow that bit,
go down the carihuela beach round dinner time, you'll see loads of flamenco guitarists in the sun painting their nails till they're hardened like bricks. that night they'll be working -m some in serious tablaos , some in various bastardised versions of flamenco for the tourists.
and will that is exactly what some people are saying here, that he wasn't fit to carry some other guy's guitar case.
okay - so once they read a book about something or other. once again the rule book is being trundled out as an excuse to get rude and snotty.
