Today Is the 20th Anniversary of the Death of Selena
It was 20 years ago today that Tejano star Selena was murdered.
Selena was on her way up and poised to cross over big time. She really was set to be the "Mexican Madonna." I can't even imagine all of the things this lady could have accomplished if she was still alive.
Selena was the "Queen of Tejano Music" and sold 60 million albums. We in the rock community can sympathize with her loss (and this isn't the first time we've honored her memory either).
We've lost people like Dimebag Darrell and John Lennon in the same tragic way. It is just so unbelievably tragic that fans can turn on their idols in this way.
So on behalf of each and every one of us, we are sorry for your loss.
