The much anticipated set of concerts closed last night with Lo Maldito (The dammed). Highlighting the 20th anniversary of his ground breaking record “Vagabundo”.
With a set list that contained more of the heavier and darker songs of his repertoire , Draco rocked the Coliseum of Puerto Rico along with a very energetic crowd that enjoyed the trip through the dark side of his career.
Personally I’ve been a fan of Draco since I was in high school. I even had the chance to meet him once too.
Not everybody gets to meet their musical heroes, so I knew how lucky I was. But the only thing I wanted more than getting a picture taken with him was to take a portrait of him. I took that chance of meeting him and took this impromptu portrait of him.
One of my most prized pics not only because I admire him as an artist but also because I wanted to celebrate his strength as a cancer survivor. Right around this time he was just escaping this horrible decease. For a moment there during his sickness things started looking bleak. But he fought through it, valiantly. So for me this whole meeting was a victory, little did I know that years later I’d be covering one of his concerts .
So this short story and set of images have a great personal value, I hope you enjoy this post and hopefully , one day you’ll meet your heroes too. Cheers.
