rest in peace Zé Leonel (1955-2011)

He was one of the first pioneers in the portuguese punk scene in the late 70’s / early 80’s! Without him, some of the most influential portuguese punk or rock bands would never existed and his touch on portuguese music will always remain in everyone’s heart! He was a kind person, always with a smile and a word of love to spare! Zé Leonel died a couple of days ago, losing his battle with a liver cancer! May his soul rest in peace…
