Several longtime members of K-Paz de la Sierra left the chart-topping duranguense group in 2007 to form a successful group of their own, AK-7. Gerardo Ram+¡rez (keyboards), Rafael Sol+¡s (keyboards), Oscar Ledesma (keyboards), Armando J. Rodr+¡guez (tambourine), Carmelo Gamboa (drums), and Luis Vidales (electric tuba) were originally members of K-Paz de la Sierra, which beginning in 2004 enjoyed exceptional success in Mexico and the United States, topping Billboard's Top Latin Albums chart repeatedly. These bandmembers split from K-Paz de la Sierra on May 28, 2007, because of disputes with lead singer Sergio Gomez (who, unrelatedly, was kidnapped and brutally murdered on December 2, 2007, after leaving a dance hall in Morelia, Michoac+ín), and formed a group of their own, AK-7 (i.e., Antes K-Paz -- in English, "After K-Paz"). Other members of the group include vocalists Alfredo Hern+índez and Adolfo Rizo. Signed to Univision, AK-7 released El Avion de las Tres (2007), an album recorded with the participation of Joel Sol+¡s and Eusebio Cort+¬z of Los Bukis. The title track was released as the lead single, followed by "La Llamada." ~ Jason BirchmeierPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
