The 51-year-old wrote on Instagram: “Alright, here’s my take on it. I loved his music even before I joined the band. I was intrigued by the fact that his brother [AB Quintanilla] had his name on everything as a producer. Keyboardist Ricky Vela was my hero when it came to music.

‘His father [Abraham Quintanilla Jr] made amazing sound when I went to see them at an event in San Antonio. I learned so much taking the roles of their guitarist Roger Garcia and doing my best to stretch it even more.

“They had a thresher girl who put it down (Suzette is really a bada **). Joe [Ojeda] and Pete [Astudillo] brought the ‘extra’ and added a whole new dimension PLUS Pete wrote some amazing lyrics… and they sounded HEAVY. ‘

He appeared to give his seal of approval, concluding, “I will forever respect the group and the people involved. Hope you enjoy this series.
