|El Godfather in action|
I was saddened to learn that Al is suffering from Stage 4 prostate cancer.
My New Mexican colleague Staci Matlock just wrote a wonderful profile of Hurricane's life and career in today's paper. You can find that HERE. You also should check out some more videos of Al's interviews, shot by Natalie Guillen, HERE.
And if you've really come down with Hurricane mania, you can even check out the 1998 profile I did. I tacked it on a political column from a few years ago in which I'd mentioned Al. CLICK HERE (and scroll down for the profile.)
New Mexico loves you, Al!
Enjoy some of his music below.
