Trini Lopez, Me Party in Palm Springs in '05

It's been almost three years since my trip to La Quinta to visit cousin Jan but I need to thank her again for inviting me to Ruth Gibson's 85th birthday party where 60s pop star Trini Lopez sang "Besame Mucho" and Jan took our photo.

Ruth, like all the other matrons in Palm Springs looked great and no doubt avail themselves of some nips, tucks here and there. Save your pension checks for Palm Springs retirement.

Is that Mr Lopez on the left? Gee, he looks so Jewish!

The Desert Sun on 11/10/08 reported: The Palm Springs-based Motion Picture Hall of Fame group will present Palm Springs resident Trini Lopez in a one-hour TV special, titled “Latin Music Legends,” to be shot tonight at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.
The special will feature such guests as Tierra, El Chicano, Thee Midniters with Little Willie G., and original Santana member Gregg Rolie and his band.
Los Lobos and Julio Iglesias will be featured.
The special will be offered as a pledge-break fund-raising show to all PBS stations to air at different dates.
Lopez, who recorded such hits as “If I Had A Hammer” and “La Bamba” for Frank Sinatra's Reprise Records, is scheduled to host the show and perform three songs.

I have known Trini Lopez and his most talented brother Jesse since 1966...I live in Dallas. I first met Trini at a wedding for a Decca record producer, Tommy(Snuff)Garrett. Both brothers are truly gifted musicians. Their vocals,song interpretations,rhythm,guitar and sax-playing abilities are inordinate;don't compare to most other musicians;and I've known many.Besides that, they are just great people;very family-oriented, spiritual,giving and fun-to-be-with. I'm thankful for the memories and the many life is forever enhanced by many songs and happy thoughts. Anyone who was a pal of Frank's has to be real class!JHSharp,Dallas,TX. 5-10-2011
