Gustavo Cerati is one of those artists whose music will always be timeless. As the late frontman of Latin rock band Soda Stereo, the Argentine singer enchanted us with his voice and unparalleled guitar skills as heard in classics like “Luna Roja,” “Un Misil En Mi Placard,” and “En La Ciudad de la Furia.”
Cerati passed away on Sept. 4, 2014 after suffering a stroke and never waking up from a subsequent coma. His legacy, however, continues.
In memory of his trajectory, Sony Music released Satélite Cerati, a collaborations compilation album that Cerati recorded with different artists, including Andy Summers, Luis Alberto Spinetta, and Mercedes Sosa.
Today (Aug. 11), on what would have marked his 59th birthday, Billboard put together a playlist with some of his best songs as a solo artist. Listen below.
