Veteran Tejano musician Gilbert Carrizales died after an accident on a power line, according to a report. He was 40 years old.

Latin Groove Music reports that Carrizales, who works as a certified electrician for his day job, died on Tuesday after a “devastating accident on a power line.”

He was a featured musician on many best-selling albums for many iconic Tejano superstars, including Shelly Lares and Carlos Y Los Cachorros, according to the report.

Lares posted on social media about the passing of Carrizales, who was the bassist in her band, “Say it isn’t so…. today I lost my brother Gilbert my bass player. I am numb in shock and disbelief. You were such a good man and one hell of a bass player.”

“We would text each other every day,” she added. “I was there like a sister to him to give him advice. My brothers and I miss you so much already and I pray for his mom and dad and entire family…my heart hurts. I just don’t know what to say other than rest easy my brother and I love you!”

 

Carlos Rodriguez, frontman of Carlos Y Los Cachorros, added his condolences on the musician’s passing, “My condolences go out to the Carrizales family from Dilley, Texas….Gilbert was an amazing friend we shared many memories…When we were in High School he learned to play bass guitar just to jam with me in my band. He played the bass 1997-1999. He’ll be deeply missed. I can’t believe this terrible news. May he Rest in Peace. I send all my love & prayers to his family.”
