The only British member of the Mexican rock and roll band The Braceros. Originally from Liverpool, England Gringo played the sitar in a band that originated the "Mercy Sound." The band quickly replaced him when they found another sitarist who could also play the drums. Undettered, Gringo moved to Mexico City and learned how to play drums. There he met three other lads, Juan, Paulo, and Jorge. The band eventually had a string of smashes including "¡Oye güey!" (roughly translated into "Hey Dude" in English) that was the first 8+ minute rock song on Mexican radio.
¡Qué poca madre! Did you see Gringo Starr on that sitar at last night's concert at Che Stadium, he was amazing!
