  • 2002
    Age 64
    In 2002, Lopez teamed with Art Greenhaw for Legacy: My Texas Roots.
    More Details Hide Details The album used the "Texas Roots Combo" including Lopez, Greenhaw, and Lopez' brother, Jesse. Said reviewer Steve Leggett of All Music Guide, "The album has an easygoing feel very similar to Lopez' classic live sets from the 1960s, only it rocks a good deal harder."
  • FORTIES
  • 1978
    Age 40
    He continued his musical career with extensive tours of Europe and Latin America during this period; an attempt to break out by releasing a disco album in 1978 proved a flop.
    More Details Hide Details Lopez produced a single promoting the Coca-Cola soft drink Fresca in 1967. In 1993, a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs, California, Walk of Stars was dedicated to him.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1968

    In 1968, he recorded an album in Nashville entitled Welcome to Trini Country (R/RS 6300).
    More Details Hide Details During the 1960s and 1970s, Lopez moved into acting, though his film career was not as successful as his music.
    He scored 13 chart singles through 1968, including "Lemon Tree" (1965), "I'm Comin' Home, Cindy" (1966), and "Sally Was a Good Old Girl" (1968).

Beyond his success on record, he became one of the country's top nightclub performers of that era, regularly headlining in Las Vegas.

    His popularity led the Gibson Guitar Corporation to ask him in 1964 to design a guitar for them.
    More Details Hide Details He ended up designing two: the Trini Lopez Standard, a rock and roll model based on the Gibson ES-335 semihollow body, and the Lopez Deluxe, a variation of a Gibson jazz guitar designed by Barney Kessel. Both of these guitars were in production from 1964 until 1971, and are now highly sought-after among collectors. Owners of the guitar include Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters and Noel Gallagher of Oasis.

It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. He also performed his own version of the traditional Mexican song "La Bamba" on the album; his recording of the tune was later reissued as a single in 1966. Another live album from PJ's was recorded later that same year under the title By Popular Demand More Trini Lopez at PJ's (R/RS 6103) which contains the song "Green Green" which was written by Randy Sparks and Barry McGuire and originally recorded by the New Christy Minstrels earlier that year for their Columbia album Ramblin.

    More Details Hide Details After a few weeks of auditions in Los Angeles, that idea did not go through. He landed a steady engagement at the nightclub PJ's, where his audience grew quickly.

  • 1959
    Age 21
    Lopez left the group and made his first solo recording, his own composition "The Right To Rock", for the Dallas-based Volk Records, and then signed with King Records in 1959, recording more than a dozen singles for that label, none of which charted.
