One year ago: Bobby Espinosa of El Chicano

February 27, 2011 |  6:00 am

Bobby Espinosa, the keyboard player who helped create the "Brown sound" of East L.A. band El Chicano, died one year ago at age 60.

It's a good opportunity to revisit some of El Chicano's hits, including "Viva Tirado Part I" (seen in the YouTube clip above), "Sabor A Mi" and "Tell Her She's Lovely."
