RIP Carlos Gomez6:57 PMDollie Simpson
It is always sad when we have to share news of the passing of one of our own. We are a little late to sharing this news on the site because it is just so heartbreaking of a story. We didn't know Carlos as well as many in our little rockabilly community did, so we will just let people who knew him better say it....
"Carlos Gomez was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident Friday September 25th and his loss has affected people all around the world. Carlos was the lead singer of "The Hi-Strung Ramblers" and owner of "American Vintage" barbershop. He had a wild and one of a kind magnetic personality, he could always make you laugh and he was an incredibly talented musician and barber. His family meant the world to him and are in disbelief that he's gone. Carlos leaves behind his wife Annie Gomez, his 2 little girls Elina and Nina, his brother Jesse, his mother Dominga and all of those that loved him.
Carlos was taken from this world way too soon but in the time he was here he touched so many lives and he will truly be missed by all of us that knew and loved him. "
Here is a video put together and posted on YouTube in remembrance:

The Gomez family has put together a Go Fund Me memorial to help with expenses. He left behind a wife, two daughters, a mother, a barber shop and a band, so I can't imagine a more worthwhile fund to donate to. Please consider it and please share.
