Jason Babineau I never thought that American-centric Allmusic would take notice. thank you, and sorry for assuming... it's a bummer of a day for our Nation.
Roger Coley Gordon and me outside La Zona Rosa, Austin, TX 2009. I knew this day would come, but it stinks none the less.. I really feel like The Hip and Gordo are my friends. Their music has lifted me up in some very bad times. I found them when looking through CDs at a store. I saw that name and decide to buy a CD knowing zero about them, and I was glad I did it. I turned on many friends to their music. We had a saying when someone exclaimed "What is that great tune?" We replied "It must be The Hip".

Gustavo Aparicio Otro más que se va este año. Holger fue uno de los fundadores de Can una banda de música progresiva, experimental y avant-garde del movimiento Krautrock alemán de los años 70 que con los años se convirtió en una banda de culto. Es muy poco lo que escuché de esta banda y hace muchísimo tiempo y ya no recuerdo cómo sonaba, pero sé que abrieron caminos y dejaron su impronta en la historia musical.
