That's really too bad to hear. I got Alexa to play Trini's "If I had a Hammer" just a couple of days ago for my 5-yr-old grandson. It is an uplifting song that kids can dance to.

COVID-19 discussions may be forbidden on these forums, but there is nothing in this world stopping you from saying what Trini died from.

Another song that I'd forgotten, "Boom boom, Boom boom, Gonna get along without you now".

Many artists covered it, but in my opinion, his version was the best...

Don't forget he was also an actor, though the only role I know was in "The Dirty Dozen".

He played familiar folk tunes on electric guitar with a Latin beat. In 1963, he was way ahead of the hippy music scene. 5 years later The Byrds made it big for a short time playing electric folk and Dylan was shocking his folky fans by going electric. The "Trini Lopez" signature Gibson guitar is a favorite with collectors.

I've been enjoying Trini Lopez shuffle on Amazon Music. He covered a lot of tunes and had a long career as a live performer. I remember that he appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show a few times. He wasn't flashy or sensational and maybe that hurt his record sales, who knows?
