Last week we received word that Argentinian music legend Gustavo Cerati had died. We were shocked. In the ’80s and ’90s, as frontman for the band Soda Estereo, Cerati became the first pan-Latin American rock star — and he was only 55 when he died on Sept. 4.

A good friend of those who sought refuge in Buenos Aires, Gustavo was one of the many Argentinians that welcomed entire families with open arms.

Soda Estereo was the first rock band to tour throughout the entire continent, and it proved that being a rocker could be profitable. Record labels took note and opened their doors to rock in your language

We are planning a tribute show celebrating Gustavo Cerati’s life and his legacy.  Please feel free to tell us what is your favorite Cerati song, live concert, or memory? You can leave your suggestions in the comments section.
