Default Re: Paolo Vinaccia

Luckily I have been able to see him live in action a few times. And as you said,
he has a truly unique character in his playing. Very recognisable.

He did get diagnosed with cancer a few years ago, but apparently he has been
recovering OK. But sadly, nothing is for sure. Some say it's impossible to know
how long he has left. But this is just what I have heard :s
