No related posts.
On 15 May 1992, Chalino performed at the Salon Bugambilias, Culiacán. In the video of the incident, an audience member can be seen handing him something, widely believed to be a note telling him he would die after he was done performing. Chalino looked around nervously for a few seconds, before resuming his performance. After midnight, Chalino drove away from the club with two of his brothers, a cousin, and several young women. They were pulled over by a group of armed men in unmarked cars. They showed state police ID cards and told Chalino their commandant wanted to see him. Chalino agreed and got into one of their cars while the others followed behind. At 6 am on 16 May 1992, two farmers found Chalino’s body by an irrigation canal near Highway 15, near the neighbourhood of Los Laureles, Culiacán. He was blindfolded and his wrists had rope marks. He had been shot in the back of the head
Reason Sanchez was murdered.
In 1975, at the age of 15, his sister was raped by “Chapo” Perez, a rich and dangerous man. Two years later in 1977, a 17-year-old Chalino saw the man at a party and allegedly shot him in revenge, killing him. After committing this act, Sanchez left for Tijuana with his gun and a Jesús Malverde chain.
So gangs retaliated
Damn, what a voice!
Very tragic. 🇲🇽. Chalino Sanchez is a legend. Very tragic death.
The show must go on…
Was reading his wiki: 1992 Coachella Incident
On 25 January 1992, Chalino was hired to sing at Los Arcos night club in the desert city of Coachella. During his performance, Eduardo Gallegos, 34, a local unemployed mechanic of Thermal, California, under the influence, jumped up on stage and began firing a small .25 caliber pistol at Chalino. Chalino pulled a 10mm pistol from his waistband and began a running gun battle chasing Gallegos. Four hundred people were in attendance of which seven to ten people were reportedly hit in the exchange. Among them was Chalino and the group accordionist, Ignacio ‘Nacho’ Hernandez. A local man, 20-year-old Claudio Rene Carranza was killed. A bystander wrestled and killed Gallegos with his own pistol. Chalino was in critical condition and underwent surgery at Desert Hospital, Palm Springs.
Hypothetically speaking: when in Mexico, can I happily play his music out loud? Or do I have to be afraid I find myself dead in a ditch with my ballsack in my mouth the following morning?
His singing is beautiful however
Never though I could find this sort of content here but it really is interesting, someone should post the story of that old man who defended his rancho against narco
Gee, tough crowd..
Long live Chalino really put dude ass in the dirt 🇲🇽
Wild story. They never forgot and were brazen enough to tell him before carrying out his execution
Damn getting death letter must be terrifying
When I was a kid, there was a guy that lived on my block who had a mural of Chalino on the side of his Chevy truck. It also had a few roosters and 1911 pistols.
I thought he was shot because he didn’t want to sign a deal with some people that where linked up with one of the Sinaloa cartel hit man, he took offense and killed him. I thought that was true because they later found chalinos gun with that same hit man years later when he died in a shootout, apparently chalino had his gun on him when they took him that night.
Hope he died painlessly. If I knew I was going to die, I’d wish it to be fast and and as painless as possible.
Ariel Pink said that Chalino was the equivalent of the Velvet Underground for narco culture
Live by the gun, (or mythologize it in song). Die by the gun.
Weird how this post came about again after mr gg and wendigoon did a video on it
Good for him. Descanza en Paz.
Took me a moment to realise that it was a death note and not a Death Note.
Why did the French bring accordions to Mexico. I hate that instrument 🤦♂️
Anyways, this story is wild.
That’s really sad.
This sounds beautiful.
What a legend, such a shame. Incredibly haunting moment to watch.
Well, that sounds like a good credits song at least.
What is a death note? Who wrote it and why? 🦄
Always leave a note…
I don’t sing, I bark. -Chalino Sanchez RIP
Man i was born in LA but he was heard all around the world. I went to Spain and they knew his music which was crazy to me. One of his songs speaks about loving a girl so much that he wants to marry her but she tells him she’ll marry him after the snow falls in January but the snow comes and goes in January and the flowers have sprung in spring. Its now May and he hasnt gotten an update (she doesnt even look at him) and he asks to talk to her without lies. And she asks for the same thing. Its a song of love that will never be but he loves her so much that he waits. Such a beautiful song i wish it was translated perfectly. Also, his voice humanized Mexican music FOREVER. Now anyone can sing a song and be validated musically but before him it wasnt accepted widely. He was a real creative back in his day and envisioned music being made by anyone anywhere which was revolutionary at the time.
This is fake
How come no audio when I save vid?
Eye for an eye for an eye.
