One of the most popular bands of all time in Spain, is Hombres G, headed by David Summers (not pictured on the right). I mean seriously popular. They’ve literally been called “the Beatles of Spain.” They also happen to be one of my absolute most favorite bands. Ever. I’ve been following Hombres G since the 1980s, and their popularity has grown exponentially since then.
Of course, even they have fallen prey to the dreaded Yankees. Here’s a clip of the band performing in 2016 in New York. And David Summers is wearing one of those shirts (also pictured on the right):
He did not wear a Washington Nationals or a Baltimore Orioles shirt at their concert in Silver Spring, Maryland, a few days later. What’s up with that? Maybe I’ll have to send him a shirt in time for this year’s concert.
If you want to actually hear the song, here’s an official video from the band from a 2015 concert in Madrid. What, no Yankees shirt, David?
PS Let me know what you think of my new Friday feature: Films on Fridays. I’ve been pretty much posting videos on Fridays anyway, so I figured I’d make it official!
