Summary It was the 1970s and a new sound was echoing through New York City like a revolution. It was hot, it was sexy, it was salsa. From a smoky club in the barrio to Madison Square Garden, one man would rise above the rest to become an icon still beloved by fans today. With his dynamic and devoted wife Puchi by his side, Hector Lavoe blazed a path through life that left a legacy of extraordinary music and personal destruction.
