La Bamba is one of the movies that makes you feel good,cry and think about how life really is short. Lou Diamond Phillps was in top form as Richie Valens who never got the chance to show us what he could do. I’m not really a Rock & Roll fan but this is a good movie and one hat brings a tear every time I watch it.
A Must-See Biopic
Ritchie Valens was a singer, songwriter, and guitarist who died at 18 in the same plane crash that killed fellow musicians Buddy Holly and J. P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson in 1959. His recording career lasted a mere eight months, yet he scored several hits, most notably the title tune, and was a true pioneer of Latin rock and roll. Lou Diamond Phillips stars in this must-see biopic.
