Four things you might not know about the legendary Charo:
1. She studied classical and flamenco guitar with Andrés Segovia and was voted Best Flamenco Guitarist twice by readers of Guitar Player magazine.
2. She’s an American citizen.
3. Her signature exclamation, “Cuchi Cuchi!” comes from the name of her childhood dog, Cuchillo (“knife” in Spanish). People loved hearing her call the dog, so she kept it up.
4. She holds the record for the most guest-star appearances on The Love Boat: 21.
