as I remember it: In the move Genchis Blues, they describe Konga-ol as "the tuvan JFK, Michael Jordan, and Elvis, all in one". i'm sad to hear he's gone.

nice cover!

...I'm wondering if the book 'Waiting for the Sun' about Los Angeles Rock addresses the Latin influence on bands there?...
  Sat. 7/27/13 8:06pm Marmalade Kitty:

you don't have to wait 'ery long for sun in LA! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/27/13 8:12pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...somewhere - Arthur Lee noted Miles Davis' 'Sketches of Spain' as a favorite - altho' 'AloneAgainOr' (one of Love's most famous songs) is actually a Bryan MacLean compostion!
- I (...often...) maintain you can hear strong Latin~Spanish influences in L.A. bands like the Doors (Robbie Krieger was a Flamenco student who doesn't use a pick), Iron Butterfly (their song 'Possesion' par example), &tc. ...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/27/13 8:17pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63: would be unnatural to *not* have a Latin influence in SouthernCali. ...
