Dominique Leurquin is a French guitarist, best known as the member of Luca Turilli's Rhapsody and the former session member of Rhapsody of Fire.

He is a friend of Luca Turilli, and in addition to his involvement in both Rhapsody bands along him was the guitarist of his other band Luca Turilli's Dreamquest.

Personal life[edit]

On October 8, 2012, Luca Turilli's Rhapsody revealed that Leurquin seriously injured his left hand with a circular saw: "After the complicated surgery and everyone around thinking it will be difficult for Dominique to play his beloved instrument once again, the doctors spent some more optimistic words to describe the situation, speaking about a long period of rehabilitation and some major problems eventually related to the thumb only. Therefore it seems there will be again the possibility for Dominique to play a guitar, and maybe sooner than what can be expected." Instead of replacing him for the live shows, Turilli arranged all the songs to add Leurquin's parts on the backing tracks at lower volume.[1]

His return was eventually announced on August 9, 2014, with the band's concert at the Made of Metal Festival on August 15 being is first show with the band.[2]
