First of all, I'd like to state that as a professional musician/artist I've always viewed Los Lobos as first-rate artists, musicians and trailblazers. Prior to their commercial hit "La Bamba," they had already been internationally acknowledged as an important new group of artists. Their endeavors to break new artistic ground are second to none.
Louis Perez's July 4 comments about the "Latino Legends of Rock 'n' Roll" concert held at the Greek Theatre on July 6 did not disturb me. Perez was supporting more shows like these throughout the year, as opposed to special, one-time only concerts featuring Latino artists on Cinco de Mayo or Sept. 16 (Mexican Independence Day).
