·"Lo Mejor 1966-1970" - Sandro

Sandro was born in Buenos Aires to Irma Nydia Ocampo and Vicente Sánchez in 1945. He was raised in the southern suburb of Valentín Alsina, and learned to play the guitar as a child, identifying his music as Romani. His paternal grandfather was Russian Rom from Hungary – Roma are known in Argentina as Gitanos (Gypsies). Considered a precursor to Rock music in Spanish. Initially, in his schooldays, he imitated King of Rock and Roll Elvis Presley, but afterwards created a personal style that marked his career. He started the musical group Sandro & los de Fuego in 1961, which gained popularity on the TV show Sábados Circulares, and became wideley-known in the 1960s. With songs such as 'Ave de Paso', 'Atmosfera Pesada', 'Quiero Llenarme de Ti', 'Tengo', '¿A esto le llamas amor?', 'Eres el Demonio Disfrazado' ( cover of '(You're The) Devil in Disguise)', 'Porque Yo Te Amo', 'Penumbras' , 'Una Muchacha y Una Guitarra', 'Trigal' or 'Rosa Rosa', the success of his career kept growing steadily. Sandro also had the leading role in various films, including ("I Want to Fill Myself with You" – 1969) and Subí que te llevo ("Hop On, I'll Give You a Ride" – 1980), and directed one feature, Tú me enloqueces ("I'm Crazy About You"), in 1976. His co-star in the latter film, argentine actrees Susana Giménez, was offered a TV variety show after he refused to host it; Later on, Giménez's show, named Hola Susana, would become a ratings leader shortly after its 1987 launch. He was the first Latino singer to sell out Madison Square Garden five times during the 1970s. Sandro was also the first singer to perform a television concert via satellite in the World's History. The concert was broadcast live from Madison Square Garden on April 1970, and marked the debut of a Latin american artist for a world audience. Sandro's songs were re recorded by international artists such us Shirley Bassey, Liza Minnelli, Burt Bacharach, Dalida, Shirley MacLaine,Toto Cutugno, Nancy Wilson, Mary Hopkins, Loredana Berté, Umberto Tozzi, Gilbert Bécaud, Milva, Julio Iglesias or Engelbert Humperdinck, among others. In the 1990s Argentine and other Latin American artists released an album called Padre del rock en castellano ("Father of Spanish Rock") in his honor. Sandro continued releasing studio albums in the beggining of the 1990s and reappeared on stage in 1993 with a new show, that was presented at Teatro Gran Rex, the most prestigious venue of Buenos Aires, performing 18 attendance-record–breaking consecutive concerts. The news that he suffered from emphysema were made public in 1998, causing a great generalized concern among his followers from all over the world. Sandro had been a self declared longtime cigarette smoking addict, which undoubtedly was the main cause of the disease. On November 20, 2009, Sandro received a double transplant (heart and lungs) in Mendoza, Argentina, the operation was a success. Five days later, in a daily press conference held by his doctors, it was reported that Sandro, although still kept in intensive care, was breathing without a respirator and that he had started a slow recovery. Nevertheless, in the evening of January the 4th of 2010, after 45 days of receiving a double cardio-pulmonary transplant, and after many complications, he died of septic shock, mesenteric ischemia and disseminated intravascular coagulation in the Italian Hospital of Mendoza, Argentina.
