10 years ago this week: Leading Tex-Mex music figure Doug Sahm passed away at the young age of 58. In the ‘60s he founded the cult favorite the Sir Douglas Quintet and later in his career he teamed with Augie Meyers, Freddy Fender, and Flaco Jimenez for the Mexican-infused country of the Texas Tornados.
