Concert at Hiram Bithorn Stadium
My brother Ismael Rodriguez, well known as Rod, is in the back row, 1st from left to right. I cannot remember the names of the other two (if anyone remembers, please tell us). On the right is Victor Rodriguez. Front row are Adrian Montijo and Rafi Morales. After Rod was drafted by the army they added the new members.
My brother passed away in 2006,
after 4 months in intensive care battling diabetes complications. I want
to do this in memory of my brother, so I do appreciate that you will be
posting this picture.

Don Jibaro Orlando (Orly) Those years rolled too fast for many of us... it put tears in my eyes of nostalgia... we were innocent, impressing the young 'uns and enjoying the accolades. I'm collaborating with a few rock vets to write a HISTORICAL account of those DAYS
Adrian Montijo Those years are still happening with a new 2012 backdrop. Why stop a good thing? Still Rocking!!! Next year will be my 50 YEARS ROCKING! aniversary! HUGE party coming!! January 28, 2012
Joe Taino guys you were and still are some of my hero's; Adrian y Orly. That's what i am talking about, it didn't get any better...guys; you owed it to yourself; just put a small combo together and play those old tunes again like you used to even if you don't make any money; you are going to feel so good...that's what i've been doing lately. Adrain,get another Gretsch; the post Fender 2003 and later are great; better than the originals. Orly,Jazzmaster or Jaguar is on your horizon.God bless you.... January 28, 2012
Adrian Montijo It will happen eventually, a concert reunion will be a blast! January 28, 2012
