Tejano music legend Roberto Pulido updated fans days after receiving back surgery in a San Antonio hospital. The 66-year-old singer posted a video on his Facebook page on Monday talking about the success of the surgery and thanking fans.
“I wanted to thank everybody for all your prayers,” Pulido said in the video. “According to the doctor, everything came out okay. Going to be a month before I can really evaluate. At least right now, I have no pain on my sciatic nerve and my legs are not going numb anymore.”
Pulido also mentioned his previous double knee surgery in February 2016 and that he will make his scheduled performance at Rustlers in Harlingen on January 6.
“El Primo,” as he is known to his fans, has more than four decades in music and is considered one of the pioneers in the Tejano music. The music legend has recorded more than 45 singles and some of his biggest hits include, “Copa Tras Copa”, “Te Vi Partir”, “Contigo” a duet with is son Bobby Pulido and “Ya Ahora Es Tarde”, recorded with the late Emilio Navaira.
