I was offered a tour once with a very well known dance company and turned it down because I refused to use a fake Spanish name. I told them that would be an insult to my family and another guitarist took the gig. I was complaining about the whole thing to my friend Jesus Montoya who is a powerful flamenco singer. He said, "I am a gypsy and I can give you your flamenco name. From now on you will be know as Jason McGuire "El Rubio". Thanks Jesus.
