'La Flaca' had not yet been the overwhelming and international success that catapulted him a few months later. So, I already noticed on the guitarist of the group, who seemed outstanding to me ", he begins by recalling the former vocalist of Hroes del Silencio.

L, 'Depende', and I think 'Flamingos' ", continues Enrique Bunbury, who recalls that" during all these years we have occasionally met in different parts of the planet , mainly in Mexico and Los Angeles ".
"It was always a pleasure to see him and chat and hug each other. I remember, when we ate at a restaurant in Sunset Plaza in LA, how he told me with regret that, what bothered him most about the success and the tours, was having distanced himself from his own daughter and not spending much more time with her ", continues the singer from Zaragoza.
" Soon, he was diagnosed with the disease. A few years later he called me and said he was leaving the music and he came to live in Los Angeles, to surf and spend the maximum time with his daughter, who came to study. We helped them find houses and schools and they settled in Venice Beach. Thereafter, we saw and talked much more often. No more than two or three months passed when called me to ask me for a bass . I handed him my Fender Jazz Bass, with which he recorded all the demos of his new and latest album 'Tragas o Escupes' ", adds the artist aragons.
" When He called me to stop by his house and listen to the finished songs, he announced that he was going back to Spain for a review. I had a bad feeling. Soon, he told me that he was already in Spain and that he had very little time left . He wanted to record his album. That was his obsession. He needed that extra and final time. Pau's death is a great sadness for all of us who knew him. But the lesson of life and death that he leaves us, is indelible. He died, sure, as he lived all his life. With a smile ", concludes Enrique Bunbury.
