Brothers Henry, Jojo and Ringo Garza make up the rock band Los Lonely Boys, which blends elements of Southwest music into a rugged rock sound, with clear influences ranging from classic British pop to Latin rock. Since their debut, they've received a Grammy for their hit "Heaven," gained fans worldwide and become renowned for their passionate live performances.

The Garzas — Henry on guitar, Jojo on bass and Ringo on drums — began learning music from their father, Ringo Garza Sr., also a musician. Their father's influence on the band is strong: They played as his backing band before breaking off and crafting their own eclectic mix of rock, country and Tex-Mex. Following the success of Los Lonely Boys' self-titled debut, they gained a confidence clearly visible in the new follow-up, Sacred, which finds them taking more musical risks and developing their distinctive style. This segment originally aired on Aug. 11, 2006.
