If you enjoy Latin, blues, rock, country or soul music, or enjoy grooving to the music of folks like Ringo Garza Sr., Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughn, B.B. King, Willie Nelson, Richie Valens, Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles or Ronnie Milsap, you should also enjoy Los Lonely Boys.
I'm proud to be a Loopie - that's the nickname for a female LLB fan - and I must say, they're serving up a pretty tasty burrito. Take my advice - go get a big bite! Check out these Los Lonely Boys sites:
* Their official site can be found at www.loslonelyboys.org. Here, you can learn all about the group. The site has lyrics, songbytes, a photo gallery, articles, news, tour information and a store where you can purchase official LLB memorabilia. You also can watch the entire video for their song "Heaven" or communicate with other fans in the fan forum.
* Check out the first official fan club Web site for Los Lonely Boys at www.llbfanclub.com. This site features a songbook of all the guys' songs and the hard-to-find Spanish lyrics to "La Contestacion," the powerful ballad at the end of their platinum debut album. The site also has the group's discography, photos, art work, information about the instruments the guys use, a calendar of events, links and more.
* Visit LLB's official site on their Or record label. It has bios, audios and videos, photos and tour information.
