Chito Cano

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Rodrigo Ángel "Chito" Cano Rodríguez was a Mexican gun runner who is idealized as the subject of several Mexican corridos,[1] including Ramon Ayala's "El Corrido De Chito Cano."[1] This corrido recounts Cano's life and numerous encounters with death.[1] He is described as a valiant man who was betrayed and shot in the back in 1971.[1] Upon falling, he laughed and yelled for the cowards to finish him off rather than running away.[1] As a result of the incident, he became a wheelchair user for the rest of his life.[2] Cano died in 2010, at the age of 74, from complications related to pneumonia.[3]

Los Cadetes de Linares also dedicated a corrido to Chito Cano titled "El Retorno De Chito Cano". Chito's brother Servando is the head of Serca Music.
