Frankie Ruiz

On August 9, 1998, Salsa lost one of its greatest singers, Frankie Ruiz, to liver failure, which according to various resources, resulted from complications of the AIDS virus. One of the first to perform in the Salsa Sensual style, Ruiz had played a major role in the resurgence of salsa's popularity in the '70s. A native of Patterson, NJ, Ruiz began singing at a very young age. He was still a child when he made his recording debut with Charlie Lopez y Su Orquesta. Moving, with his mother, to Puerto Rico in 1965, he became enamored by the music of a popular salsa band, La Solucion. Attending as many of the group's performances as possible, he quickly learned the band's repertoire. Although his mother implored on music director Roberto Rivera to audition him, Ruiz was not taken seriously until the band's lead singer failed to show for a night club engagement. Asked to fill in for the evening, Ruiz impressed the band so much that he was invited to become a full-time member. He remained with the group for three years. Leaving La Solucion in the early '70s, Ruiz accepted an invitation to join Tommy Olivencia's orchestra. During the three years that he spent with the group, he scored a major hit, "La Duda." Ruiz launched his solo career in the mid-'80s. Despite his obvious talents as a vocalist, Ruiz was plagued by drug and alcohol dependency and a thirst for hard living. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

I wish u didn't post he may have had Aids virus. That's really a very private thing and you shouldn't embarrass his family. He was an AMAZING and extremely TALENTED singer who is so LOVED by many both in PR, USA and all of Latin America. He is still my favorite and I blast his music in my car every day! He is so missed
Whom ever sold or gave him those drugs ,caused all of us to loose frankie (RIP),, at such a young age ..hope u all rot in hell
Old school is the best and will all ways be
All his music my love of my life PAQUITO LAGO husband with F.RUIZ I said yes and still together 30yrs.and in LOVE. Carmin
He could NEVER BE replaced. A gifted F.RUIZ, rapped., artists, wrote his own music and to many tried to distroy him. But he left us here his music. RIP MR.F RUIZ.SINGING IN HEAVEN. C U.
FRANKIE WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBER FOR HIS TALENT N MUSIC
R.I.P. FRANKIE, TU VOZ SENSUAL. WE CAN STILL HEAR IT!!
Frankie Ruiz fue uno de los salsero que com su voz y talento impacto fuerte en los a~o 80 cuando la salsa paso por una crisis musical por que no se le daba taller por causa del "boom" del merengue el cual se les contrataba mas.
Don't read this because it actually works. You
will be kissed by the love of your life on the
nearest possible Friday by the love of your life.
Tomorrow will be the best day of your life.
However if you don't post this you will die in 2
days. Now you've started reading so don't stop.
This is so scary put this on 5 songs in 143
minutes. When done press f6 and your lover's
name will come on the screen in big letters.
