R.I.P. Mario Lopez (Lomar)

SAD DAY TODAY…My most heart felt sympathy to the family of Mario Lomar – lead singer of a very talented and admirable band for me and for many, Curanderos. I met Mario back in 1995. He was among a handful of great bands that pioneered the local spanish rock wave. The last time we spoke, we laughed at a video they played in the background of one of their first gigs. The images were so traumatizing, I demanded he pay for my therapy sessions! -Thank you for being brave enough to share yourself with us all. You’ll never be forgotten.

    1. Thank you for asking! You can find their music video for “Dolores” and other unofficial videos on YouTube. Their c.d. “Evolución Show” may be purchased (or downloaded) at “Cdbaby.com & at CD Universe. You can also buy it at iTunes & stream it on Spotify. All the other CDs are sold out with no plans to re-issue any time soon.” (It’s nice to have a CD… I still have their homemade CD from the first time I saw them.)

  1. So sad U_U…please one of you can give me a link of curanderos official´s page….i cant find it ……sorry for my bad english

    1. Thank you for asking Jul. The only Official Curanderos page that I’m aware of is the ol’ MySpace page ( http://www.myspace.com/curanderos ). He had other projects after ‘The Cu’, as fans called it. He worked with Kill Pablo, and more recently, Polari. Im not counting Facebook. If ANY reader is aware of more Curanderos pages, feel free to share with us…. – Básicamente, la única página oficial que yo conosco se encuentra en MySpace bajo la dirección supracitada. En ella, encontrarás música y fotografias. La página tiene tiempo desatendida. Sin embargo, no olvidemos que Curanderos tiene mucho tiempo que se desintegró. Mario participó como Kill Pablo y más recientemento con Polari. Invito a lectores a compartír paginas donde podremos encontrár mas de Curanderos. Gracias Jul. – “E”

  2. Im shocked devastated about this I’ve known Mario for what seemed forever . He had the best vibe always happy . Many memories with him and his band . Words can’t describe the amount of talent he possessed . May he amongst the angels playing his guitar singing with his amazing voice .
