  1. Your’er the best, will never be no other like you, never. I have been listing to your music since 1989, an still do. In my car only play you, my iPod only you, my box in the garage which I do excercise only you. My kids grew up with your music and danced to it!!
    And most of all your music has gotten me thru the sad and bad times, it always cheered me up.
    Guilty or innocent that’s between you and God. I hate that this has happened because since you left music out there is not good, I haven’t been to a dance in years because of the music. Hope to see you soon playing your awesome music and to hear your wonderful voice. God Bless

  13. I agree that if the Lord promises to make our sins as white as snow He will, because is not One that He should lie. Who are we that we should judge we sin at every step, the ones that know Christ and know that they know they are sinners and can ask for forgiveness. Those that don’t know the beauty of Gods Love & Mercy are missing out on such a beautiful gift that no man or woman or thing, or money can fulfill. Being saved does not mean we’ll never sin again, it just means that we know that there is forgiveness in the Precious Blood of Jesus that makes us whole again.

  14. Dear Joe: I dont listen to Tejano music anymore. The last time I saw you perform you seemed like a very different person. I had gone to one of your concerts in ’93 & I was very disappointed. You had show up late to the dance, you looked wasted, & you slurred through most of your songs. When last I saw you Iwas astonished on how mature & responsible you had become. I was unaware that you had been arrested & tried I wish you best of luck if you appeal.

  15. Leo the keyboard player, we all know you have always been a good person . We all know your innocent. Will keep praying for you! You’ll be out real soon with gods help. Bro. Tx

  16. Hi,im JR with the band Nuestra Familia from colorado,can you please add our website?thanks….

    BIG HUGE CHINGON de shout outs to the RGV Mcallen lived there on and off since 1968 20 yrs total….La Paloma…La Zavala Nolana and 23rd….orale….simone

  18. Joe and I first met at red lobster in mcallen back in 1991 i had the pleasure of becoming the groups server when they were in town…being from the bronx was funny to mazz…jimmy told me I was the only chicano in NYC…I usually met up with them at the embassy after concert did this only once…I corresponded with Joe over a short period of time I have to admit that I feel stongly in my heart that this is a wrongful conviction…its a what i call a ‘star-struck’ crime against this man…like MJ (rip)…
    I hope to resume communication with Joe in due time…I have very special and advanced computer skills and I will reveal what the REAL truth is: JOE LOPEZ ES INOCENTE y la verdad lo libera…

    • I feel the same way, so what ever needs to be done to get to the truth and set this man FREE.

    • Could you get his address I want to write to him I wrote once but lost the address or do you know where I can get again and he never answered my letter, so I don’t know if he got it Thank You

  19. I didn’t know the Lord was in prison? What a joke ! Tejano music will go on without him.

    • God is everywhere…..we all did things in the past, whether big or small, and not proud of it….but once we accept the Lord all is forgiven and forgotten…

  24. Keep the faith Joe we were neighbors por la Harrison we always admired your music still do Joe.

  25. This guy had been preying on underage girls for years at concerts and elsewhere. He’s a loser who finally got what he deserved. How appropriate that once he’s behind bars he suddenly finds redemption. Funny how that didn’t happen when he was hitting on 17 year olds and nose-down on the powder. Good riddance.

  26. pinche joe bien contentote por echar a perder su carrera lo dicho . dios les da talento .. y estos mal agradecidotes lo echan a perder .pendejo

  27. I will always remember your music. Can hardly wait until you are out to hear your voice again.

  28. Mary Helen Garcia

    Dear Joe, you and I don’t really know each other but your music is in all my cars but mostly, in my heart… I am today a successful educated mother of three. At one time in my youth I was struggling through my history classes and one professor knew how much I liked your music and so we made a deal. He promised to introduce us. I can honestly tell you, I never failed a class after that. We did not get to meet till much later but thanks to you and Medrano I made it. I would like to say Thank you and I hope to meet you again. Keep making beautiful music and until we meet again…. may god bless you. …MHG.

  29. Love your music hopefully one day you will be out …we need more old school tejano music couldn’t belive how family could do such a thing .But we r going to leave it in gods hands many prayers go out to you. take care you really did a big apperance change……
