It was a pleasure for me and Tara Linda to meet David Hidalgo (Los Lobos) in San Pablo during one of his recent recording sessions. David borrowed my 1970s Corona II GCF for his sessions. As you all know, David is one of the most inspiring, active, and evolving musicians. He is also one of the nicest, most down to earth individuals you will ever meet. It would be a dream to have David produce a Sombra de La Luna project, one that we hope materializes, si dios quiere.

Wow, that would be cool, Gil. I've met him once before and got the same impression: Sincere, down-to-earth guy.

David Hildago and Los Lobos have been a huge inspiration to those who like me came to trad mex musica as an outsider and later than most..

Lobos' Anselma and Flaco's Viva Seguin were two songs which inspired many to explore the accordion and musica conjunto .. texmex.. norteno.. tejano..

He is an amazing musician..nice to hear he as just as nice a guy..

Good luck on your projects !

I'm a big Lobos fan.   Watching David back in the mid to late 80s playing an accordion inspired me as well.

Ditto what Glenn said.  An awesome live band that cuts across many musical genres.

when my brother was a little kid he saw David on Sesame Street playing the accordion with Elmo and it actually inspired him to pick up my Dad's Hohner and he actually was able to play the melody. He then started learning to play with the help of our Dad. I think the song was called "Elmo and the Lavender Moon." It was a pretty sweet little melody.

I actually got the pleasure of meeting David Hidalgo and although Cesar Rosas has been called a Musicologist at one point or another I think David is the Backbone who drives Los Lobos and of course the keyboard player cant remember his name. But met them in a concert at liberty lunch in downtown Austin,Tx. got to go back stage with them and all were very nice about talking to you about music and getting autographs. I had a awesome time.

AMARO: You lucky guy you. A great group/have most of their old music.
 
The only time I dared go into the dressing room of an artist, was when Little Richard came to Fresno, California. We were watching the opening show and all of a sudden we hear a loud roar by the front door. Being a very large hall, we couldn't see anything. My wife, two of our friends were with us right at stage front.
 
Then the commotion starting coming closer/closer and there he was, surrounded by many who were wearing English Guard Attire. They went into the dressing room by the huge stage. There was a guard at the entrance door.
 
I inched my way through the crowd and went up the steps and told the guard that I was a reporter for the Fresno Bee and  my assignment was to interview Mr. Penniman. The guard opened the door and told him about me. He said that I could come in.

Amazing, he was sitting on a stool surrounded by all these guards as if someone was going to mob him in there, lol..Anyway, I lied as to whom I was and he answered all my "stupid" questions. 
 
Now, listen to this, I had a little bitty "brownie" camera and asked him if I could have a picture with him for our paper. Not once did anyone ask for an I.D. or anything, but he agreed, gave the camera to one of his guards, went to his side, put my arms around him, cause I truly admired/and still do, the guy. The picture was taken and I thanked him and went out.
 
Man, the greatest day of my life.     The announcer came out and introduced him and you should hear the loud roar of the crowd, deafeningly...Anyway, as always, he did a great presentation.
 
I explained this to one of my friends later and he said he did almost the same thing with HIS hero, James Brown, lol...We are all   weird, one way or another.  Chuco

Chuco, that is a neat story.  Little Richard's "Long Tall Sally" was the first record I bought when I was a young kid in the 50s, to the dismay of my parents.  Little Richard is one of the greatest talents in American popular music and with Chuck Berry & Elvis Presley essentially defined rock & roll.  This was pretty radical stuff in 1956 (check out Bill Haley of Bill Haley & The Comets at a table in the audience):

 TIGRE, yes, I had a video where he is saying how all the white kids would buy his records and hide them underneath Pat Boone's so their parents couldn't see them, lol...
 
Little Richard, to me, is greater than Elvis but of course, Elvis, even in death, outsells everybody else...I liked Elvis, never bought one of his records.  Our son, so much later, bought them all, lol..

In my opinion Los Lobos were the highlight of the 2007 National Tejano Convention in Las Vegas. The first time I saw them perform live was at another Tejano showcase down in Tucson. Dave and the rest of Los Lobos areTremendously gifted musicians.

A la madre, Chuco.  Did you have to wear the same color of eyeliner to be let in?  jejejeje!!! Todo en broma, Bro.  I really like Little Richard's music. I don't play or sing it.

PEPITO, Man, I know to what you are referring. I didn't know anything about him until a friend of mine told me. He said he went to see him in Seattle when he was just starting our and was truly big.
 
After the show, he said, some guys beat him up because of his being that way. I truly love his style/voice and I sang, imitating him, for a few weeks at a Nuevo Laredo, Tamps nightclub.
 
I also liked James Brown but not enough to buy his records nor pay to see his shows...

I met Los Lobos a few years ago, and they all are some of the most humble musicians
