Posted for my friend who is Mexican "On the inside, where it counts."


Jenni Rivera, along with crew and her handlers just died in a plane crash in Northern Mexico.

California girl, Mexican heritage, made it HUGE in Grupero, rare for a lady.

She was a great cultural ambassador between our countries. Anybody who thinks we can ever separate ourselves from Mexico is living in an alternate reality.

Check Jenni out.

Really sad story. Started following it when the plane went missing. Really tragic for all involved. RIP to Jenni and all on the plane with her.

Sad news.

True, that.

Very sad. I just started learning about her. A true ground-breaking pioneer. In music, business, and entertainment.

I read she'd have marathon concerts, going five hours plus, exhilarating and exhausting audiences. Swilling tequila at the end. I appreciate that.

RIP

Her remains were flown back to L.A. tonight. Big crowds and news coverage going off as we speak.

I really never heard of her before now (well, the headlines the other day on BBC and CNN), but it appears that she was an immense talent.

And yes Canada and Mexico will always be intertwined with the US. I just wish those damn drug cartels would go away. Mexico and its people are lovely. In 1985, along with Rob Grandfield and others, we climbed the three volcanoes (actually I did a solo on Ixta, not that difficult, a slog, the others were too tired from doing Popo), and we were treated very well by the Mexican climbers (but there was that one incident in Pueblo with the police).

May this lady rest in peace.
