Subject: La Bamba sequel

I didn't know Luis Valdez wanted to make a sequel to La Bamba. I saw this interview recently:

NYT: In the late ’90s, you said you were going to start working on a sequel to “La Bamba” that would follow Ritchie’s brother, Bob. What happened to that project?

VALDEZ: It seemed to me that there was an extension of the story. I had followed Bob for the movie, God bless him, he died a couple of years ago. He was 81 with a Mohawk and an earring. He was just a sensational person to know, and to enjoy really as a friend. There was a story there that had to do with the extension of the history of rock ‘n’ roll, how we went from the ’50s into the ’60s. The vehicle to get there was really Bob’s through line. So I pitched this idea to a number of producers and I couldn’t get a hook.
