In all seriousness tho... speaking on the whole "more popular w/whites than chicanos"... aside from their cover songs of old Mexican songs (minus a few spanish rock style exceptions)... well... lets just say I could see why they'd be more popular w/whites lol.

Yeah, that shit is sad. Supposedly she neglects her kids to sell herself to pay for more drugs. She had such promising career too. Oh well.

Nah, I like ccr and many types of music. Los lobos not exactly my cup of tea but they're talented and I can respect their music. But bottom line, its not what paisas be bumping in their 95 burbans ey...more likely to get bumped by some white people in a Volvo.

You gotta admit, they do sound like that at times lol.

It should be no great mystery as to why Los Lobos wouldn't catch on with many of the more traditional fans. And by traditionalist I dont mean just "narco" and "gangsta" stuff. IMO Los Lobos is like a "jack of all trades; master of none". And as big of a fan as you are, it should be clear to you which ones would more than likely appeal to one group or the other or both. Y como dice el dicho, uno conoce su raza.

I guess my problem is in their lack of recognition in general and in particular among my own como dices...

In a world where Carlos Santana is revered for playing the same tired licks he was playing in the Seventies and Los Lonely Boys sell records by being Los Lobos meets Santana meets Stevie Ray Vaughn meets ZZ Top .. And has released the same record four times now with a different name ...I would figure a band that reinvents themselves and doesn't pigeon hole themselves into any particular style would be more popular.

I get it.. I just don't understand it..
