Richard Bean and Sapo
In the annals of Bay Area music, "Suavecito" will no doubt go down as the ultimate Latino love song. The San Francisco Latin rock group's 1972 hit featured the voice of Richard Bean, who wrote it. Today the longtime Hayward resident is still going strong with Sapo, now celebrating 40 years of performing his tune with the band he formed after leaving Malo.

Known as the greatest Chicano love song of all time, the 1972 top 20 hit single was written by timbale player Richard Bean, who initially wrote it as a poem for a girl in his high school algebra class. The song has also been called The Chicano National Anthem. "I have heard it so many times that it almost is part of my brain, I think Richard Bean (along with Pablo and Abel) really created a sweet Latin lovers anthem, the song is simple, like all great love songs and I think it is very romantic. Richard was/is a great songwriter with a very different aspect to his writing. I wonder how Malo would have fared had he and Abel stayed in the band. Well, Malo got a Top 20 Billboard hit that has lasted for 40 years and means a lot to Chicanos..." ~ Quote from Jim McCarthy writer for "Voices of Latin Rock" on his opinion of "Suavecito".
