    Really sad news and, unfortunately, I think we're going to be seeing more and more of this... so many of the people that were at their musical prime in the fifties and sixties are really getting up there.

    I'd hate to be a pessimist at a time like this, but Faux is telling you right.

    that's what

  • Oh man, this is hard to take. I saw Ray play about five years ago in NY and he still had it. I never got to meet him but had always heard he was great and very friendly. He had a great career and will leave behind many a cherished album. Played with many greats, mentored some, and contributed greatly to latin music.
    Personal top 5:
    1. Soul Drummers
    2. Deeper Shade of Soul
    3. Diablo
    4. Together
    5. Arrepientate

    RIP El de las Manos Duras!!


  • Man, I was just coming down off of how tough that footage of him making snow-cones for the kids was in "Our Latin Thing".

    Shit.

    Deep beats and deep crates,

    Thats so strange.....Ive only takin my gold label 'Acid' LP out of the house Twice! since I found it last summer and Last night ( thursday) just happend to be one of them. I played 'Soul Drummers' towards the end of my set. I love that whole album. I'm very glad I came upon his music. He lived a long life and gave so much. R.I.P.

    It's incredible when you realize how
    prolific he was, the amount of music he created and
    contributed to. Truly a pioneer and a legend.

    I'll be checking alot of his stuff in the next few days,
    I'm sure, but right now I'm rolling with this:
