Los Lobos

What if your greatest hit was barely a reflection of your body of work? This could be the case for Los Lobos, whose cover of La Bamba was by far their largest hit, but was a poor representation of what this band was really about. To paint Los Lobos as a band that draws from Latin influences is to really undersell what this group could do. Granted, they could (and recorded) music that was clearly rooted in Mexican influences but they could also create a wide variety of music that drew from American Roots Rock, Country and Blues. Los Lobos was also not afraid to experiment and their forays into Alternative Pop were brilliant. With no Latin American band in the Hall, Los Lobos could very well be the band that fills that void. Should that happen, one of the most underrated and talented bands would be at home. ~ Not In Hall Of Fame: Los Lobos ~ retrieved October 3, 2015 © Not In Hall Of Fame

Los Lobos ~ How Will The Wolf Survive (1984) ~ #30 Rolling Stone 100 Best Albums Of The Eighties in 1990 ~ They adroitly mixed blues rave-ups like Don't Worry Baby with traditional numbers such as Serenata Nortena and personal songs by Perez and Hidalgo about the band's quest to retain its Mexican American heritage while working within a glossy pop-star industry. ~ 1990 © Rolling Stone
