Ricardo González’s tailor was the same one who made Elvis Presley’s suits in the 1980s. Now the Mexican singer’s wardrobe will be in an exhibition prepared by one of his sons.
More than 10 costumes that Cepillín wore, as well as his collection of shoes and the pictures that the TV clown himself painted, will be part of the Cepillín Museum, whose project one of his sons, Ricardo González jr, wants to build.
The clown, too, points out that the pieces will have sentimental value, in addition to economic value.
«We are working on the Cepillín Museum. It would be wonderful because in the 80s my father’s tailor was the same as Elvis Presley, so there are a series of beautiful hand-embroidered suits that were darned by the same person, “he tells El Universal.
“If you realize the last suit Elvis wore had the Aztec Calendar on his back because the tailor who made the suits in Beverly Hills was Mexican.”
The interpreter of songs such as “La Feria de Cepillín” died on March 8 at the age of 75 and with 50 years of artistic career in music, film and television.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the TV clown could not say goodbye on the stage, so, with the reopening of the shows, his son Ricardo and Cepillín’s grandsons continue to offer shows around their country honoring his legacy.
The next weekends will be presented in Ecatepec and San Juan de Aragón. They also have a tour of Veracruz, Aguascalientes and Querétaro, in July, and hope to visit the United States.
“All the places for my dad were important but he was from Monterrey and we want to put on a great show there because he couldn’t say goodbye to Monterrey,” he said.
«We released the animated Cepillín yesterday, the botarga is beautiful because it is made with all the quality and it looks too much, it is not the classic botarga made where it goes. It is part of the projects to come ».
In advance, Ricardo jr. He shares with El Universal that next month they will premiere a video with a song that he and his children dedicate to Ricardo González Cepillín called “Abuelito.”
«The theme is composed by one of the people who made songs for my dad. It is about the meaning of value to grandfather, what you enjoy being with your grandfather, it is 100% dedicated to grandfather and in our case 100% dedicated to my father. The message is that children today value if they have it, that they enjoy it to the fullest because you may think that you are going to have it for life and it is not like that.
Ricardo González jr. “Cepi” points out that the video will be moving. He also relates that his children’s relationship with their grandfather was beautiful and that they enjoyed it to the fullest.
«One of the most important messages that my father gave me when I was 41 or 42 years old is that he told me ‘if I was not the best father let me pay you with your children by being the best grandfather’, then he gave himself to the maximum with the grandchildren ».
