Argentine rock legend Gustavo Cerati was a towering figure in popular Latin music. He was the frontman of Soda Stereo, the most influential rock en español band of the '80s and early '90s (and arguably of all time), and he went on to mount a compelling solo career that only furthered his mystique. Cerati's debut as a solo artist, Bocanada, released in 1999, was an intensely ambitious album incorporating guitar rock, electronica, and orchestral arrangements. During 2002, he released the electronic rock album Siempre Es Hoy. Cerati returned to his roots in 2006 with Ahí Vamos, a surging guitar rock album that promptly ushered him back into the Latin music mainstream. Although he suffered a stroke in 2010 that left him in a coma until his death in 2014, he remains one of the most important musicians in the Latin music world. ~ Jason Birchmeier
