Felíz cumpleaños, Chente
As you can tell, things on my part have been quiet because of classes. I’m working on a series of posts for L.A. Eastside and here that will probably take me another month to complete. I need myself to get down and write or expand the current drafts. I want to make sure they’re complete before I schedule them to be published because I think they will be something of interest to readers of L.A. Eastside, including those blogs that just link to other blogs.
Today is Vicente Fernández’s 69th birthday! Here’s a video of Chente singing “A mi manera” at a sold out plaza de toros.
I think this video is from a performance at Mexico City’s Plaza de Toros. It was a free show and he announced that if he was not able to fill la Plaza de Toros (it’s the largest in the world), he would retire. It was full to the brim.
