We note the death of popular Chicano musician Eduardo "Lalo" Guerrero. He died Wednesday in Rancho Mirage, Calif. He was 88. Dubbed "The Father of Chicano Music," his repertoire ranged from politically charged corridos to popular Latin-flavored parodies. His influence was felt far and wide in the Latin music community.
