Buenos Aires band Fricción recorded the ultimate Spanish version of 'Heroes;' Gustavo Cerati joined a live performance of the song
Today, as the world mourns the loss of David Bowie, “Heroes” will be among the songs heard across the globe. Rock en español fans grasping for some consolation can crank up Fricción’s great Spanish-language version.
Fricción was the Buenos Aires band led by the powerful and characteristically dark singer and guitarist Richard Coleman. Early in his career, Coleman had a brief moment as the fourth member of Soda Stereo, and in later years produced albums for his friend and Soda frontman Gustavo Cerati, another musical hero who would depart too soon.
