MANAGER OF ROCK BAND KAMIKAZE PASSED AWAY AT THE AGE OF 56
7/2/1962 – 9/3/2018
Alejandro Avino went on vacations with his family to Viña Del Mar in Chile three weeks ago. Avino had a heart stroke and was immediately hospitalized for treatment in a Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at the Naval Hospital.
Alejandro was in a medical induced coma during two weeks while awaiting cardiac surgery. He was on the surgery table for several hours on March 7th, and although the procedure was successful; an acute renal failure occurred. Doctors and nurses did their best to revert the kidney failure with dialysis but a septic shock finished the battle on Friday, March 9th, 2018.
Alejandro Avino was an amazing human being, a music fan and singer with a special passion for Rock and Roll and had such a unique talent for music management.
He was the manager of well known rock band “Kamikaze” in 1992; and worked very hard for the band’s third album release which was presented in a Buenos Aires Theatre, a sold out gig, amongst some other live shows on TV, press conferences and radio interviews plus touring. Alejandro Avino was also the manager of rock band “La Nave”.
On a more personal note, I met Alejandro Avino 28 years ago. We were good friends and shared the same passion for rock music. I witnessed the stressful rock managing work and saw him exhausted many times, but he kept going and going.
In 1993 my daughter was born and he was the godfather. I have no words to express how we feel…
I want to thank journalist Claudia Pizarro from Valparaiso Chile who helped us in desperate times when blood donors were needed for the open heart surgery. She quickly made the blood donor call public. Thanks so much Claudia, it means a lot.
