De Musica Ligera: Get well soon Gustavo!

Former Soda Stereo frontman Gustavo Cerati is said to be in critical condition after undergoing surgery for a stroke suffered on Saturday. He has undergone several surgeries and one of the neurologists who examined him said that Cerati has suffered from “extensive brain damage.”

Fans have held a vigil outside of the Caracas hospital where he remains while artists from around the Americas including former bandmate Charly Alberti wish Cerati a speedy and prompt recovery:
“I’m not feeling well at all. My mind has been like a beehive since Sunday…you have to have faith.’ – [ed. Translated text]
Below is the music video of “Rapto”, one of the songs from his latest album entitled “Fuerza Natural.” Here’s hoping that Cerati can somehow recuperate after such massive stroke:
