It's a sad day in the music world with the passing of the iconic Mexican singer Joan Sebastian, who lost his battle with cancer at age 64. The multi Grammy award winner battled with the disease for 16 years after being diagnosed with bone cancer in 1999. He passed away at 7:15p.m. (local time) on Monday in his ranch located in Juliantla, Guerrero, Mexico. With a successful trajectory that began in the late '70s, the singer and songwriter leaves behind an incomparable legacy via his music. We remember the legend with some of his best quotes from songs.
