UPDATE: It is with great sadness that we have to pass on the news of the loss our good friend J.R. Tenorio today September 4, 2013.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of his friends and family. We were honored take time out to pay a special tribute to one of, if not our most devoted fans this past weekend after our show in New Mexico.
Here are some thoughts from some of the Steel Pulse Family on his passing:
“For 17 years, it’s been my great fortune to be a part of an incredible musical legacy: Steel Pulse. From my earliest days with the band, back in 1996, I have had the honor of meeting some of their truly devoted fans and many of them have become dear friends, regardless of how often we kept in touch. None of them touched me, and my family, more than JR Tenorio. He was the most loving, caring and giving soul one could ever hope to meet.” Rich N.
“Our hearts and prayers to the entire family. LIFE… The journey continues.” Sidney Mills
Please share your thoughts and prayers with the family of J.R. and the whole Steel Pulse Family.
Please take the time to watch the video of our visit last weekend and feel free to share the link and comment! Bless!
NOTE: We also would like to thank our fans for all your support at such short notice. We know we can always count on you!
Hail Mi Irieites,
As we complete all the tour dates issued in the USA, we take time out to pay a special tribute to one of our most devoted fans; J.R., who lies gravely ill at home on a reservation in Santa Ana, New Mexico.
Performing at the “Roots Reggae Festival’s” debut event located in the Albuquerque region, without the presence of J.R., left a void that we desperately had to fill by going to his house immediately after the show.
Our entire performance was livicated to JR. We love you Bro! We love you…
