With a rhythmic sound and youthful energy, La Clave De Chihuahua has started to gain popularity in the regional Mexican music field. Now they’re touring with the likes of Ramon Ayala and La Sonora Dinamita.

La Clave is ona 5 city tour of Texas this week, including a May 10 stop in San Antonio at Arjons International Club, 8736 Tesoro. Showtime is 9 p.m. , doors open at 8 p.m. Pre-sale tickets can be obtained by calling 210-912-9732. May 10 is Mother's day in Mexico and a big traditional family day.

The group began 12 years ago when Eunice and Fabricio, who were not only in love but also loved cumbia music. The couple would sing at area nightclubs and bars around the city of  Chihuahua. Eventually they got additional members and La Clave de Chihuahua was born.

A graduate of the then Institute of Fine Arts in Mexico, Fabrizio came up with the band’s name, referring to the heights they hoped to achieve in the cumbia genre.

Two weeks ago, the band toured Toluca, Guadalajara and Mexico City, where they were featured in area TV and radio stations as well as newspapers.

Buzz with Burr 7 /9
Black Sabbath
All Pages

The news in the Buzz with Burr could be called rock and rage - again - now it's Black Sabbath and AC/DC

Black Sabbath

First Black Sabbath.

According to the LA Times, when Black Sabbath recently reunited, including longtime singer Ozzy Osbourne, original drummer Bill Ward said he couldn't join the band because of financial obligations - whatever that means.

Anyway, when the band went on tour with another drummer, Ozzy took several shots at Ward, saying he was too fat and out of shape to join the band. Ward blew Ozzy off, saying Ozzy was just being his crazy self.

But on August 15, Ward will host the West Coast premiere of his fine art exhibition titled "Absence Of Corners", a collection of 15 abstract works created from Ward's drum performance.

The "Absence Of Corners" exhibition is a special limited engagement and only hangs at Fathom in downtown Los Angeles through August 29.

Ward also recently released his first solo album in 18 years titled "Accountable Beasts", and the record can be purchased on iTunes.

Now, we move to AC/DC

You will recall a few weeks ago,

(Tragedy never fails to stun and shock us when it comes. In this case, the late great Lionel Pulido. Our correspondent Ramon Hernandez files this report and photos on the death of a famed musician.)
 
How does a family handle so many deaths?
“The first to pass on was Leonel’s brother Luz, then his brother Martín. Martín was only 45 and Leonel took it real hard,” a grief-stricken (José) Roberto “El Primo” Pulido said in a telephone call to this writer following the burial services for his uncle Leonel Pulido.

3 Doors Down on U.S. tour, new CD coming
3 Doors Down
All Pages

(Flashback - 12 years ago, 3 Doors Down were one of the hottest groups on the horizon. Here's an interview on the eve of their San Antonio show back in 2003. The group's upcoming CD is titled "Us and Tonight and set for release later this fall.) 

By RAMIRO BURR 9-12-2003
When 3 Doors Down blew on the scene seemingly out of where in 2000 with the smash single "Kryptonite," 

the group members were rookies says guitarist Chris Henderson.

 Rookies, at least, in the studio. 

 “In the first album we didn’t really know what to do,” Henderson said. “We didn’t know how to approach making a record, but now we know how to approach making a record.”


“Kryptonite” came from the same six million-plus selling album “The Better Life” that also yielded radio hits like "Loser" and "Be Like That."

3 Doors Down headlines a show tonight at Sunken Garden Theater. Opening is Seether and Our Lady Peace. Tickets are $28.50 through Ticketmaster.

    The band is touring behind their follow-up CD “Away from the Sun.”

The news in Buzz with Burr starts with the 2015 Tejano Music National Convention scheduled in Las Vegas.

Among the headliners for this year's festival includes Elena T Los Tejano Ryders, La Tropa F, Dwayne Verheyden, Gary Hobbs, Little Joe Y La Familia, Rio Jordan, Chente Barrera, Ricky Valenzuela, Elida Y Avante, Jimmy Gonzalez Y Mazz.

 

The Tejano Music National Convention is set for July 31 and August 1 at the Westgate Resort and Casino (formerly the Las Vegas Hilton).

Ok, - the year was 1967 - it was August, and a song popped on the radio that became a No. 1 for a group known as the Boxtops.

That song was called "The Letter," about a guy wanting to get home fast to his girlfriend.

Well, the man who wrote that song, Wayne Carson, died Monday at the age of 72 in Nashville, Tenn. in hospice care after a lengthy illness, according to family friends.

Carson was also famous for a couple of other songs, including Willie Nelson's "Always on My Mind," which he co-wrote with Johnny Christopher and Mark James, and which won two Grammy Awards in 1982.

In 1966 Carson scored his first big hit, titled "Somebody Like Me," recorded by Eddy Arnold, and his songs have been covered by many artists across genres, from Elvis Presley to Al Green.

Carson was inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1997.
