Remembering the words “Las piedras rodando se encuentran y tu y yo algún día nos tendremos que encontrar” (Stones that roll will meet, and you and I will have to meet someday), as recited in a song by the renowned Mexican rock singer Alex Lora, one can’t help but dedicate those lyrics to the high-ranking executives of the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) this Wednesday.
After some time of legal disputes, Lora can proudly say that he has emerged victorious.
Alex Lora’s unbelievable legal victory
According to David Medrano Félix, a journalist from TV Azteca and a contributor to the sports newspaper Récord, Lora has won a lawsuit against the governing body of Mexico’s most popular sport.
The legal battle revolved around the commercial and artistic use of the name of his music group ‘El Tri’, a name that the FMF had also long used to refer to the national football team.
Lora celebrated this victory and expressed his happiness while stating that it was a historic day in which the true winner was Mexican rock and its rich tradition.
Who Is Alex Lora, and when was ‘El Tri’ founded?
It’s worth noting that ‘El Tri’ is a true institution of Spanish-language rock, a band that has left an indelible mark on the Mexican and Latin American music scene.
Founded in 1968 by Alex Lora, the group has maintained a constant presence in Mexican musical culture.
The distinctive style of ‘El Tri’ is characterized by the fusion of rock and roll, blues, and other genres.
Their lyrics, mostly simple but profound, address themes that resonate with everyday life, society, and personal experiences, uniquely connecting with their audience.
Among their major hits are “Pobre Soñador” (Poor Dreamer) and “Triste Canción de Amor” (Sad Love Song).
However, beyond their albums, what distinguishes this band is their live performances, through which they have profoundly connected with their dedicated followers for several decades.
Alex Lora is not only the unmistakable lead vocalist but also the face of the group, with a unique style and a voice that, far from being the most melodious, is remarkably well-suited to their style of music.
