Michelle Heidler This is such a beautiful tribute. It broke my heart to hear that Bugs died last year. His musical legacy lives on in every life he touched.


Bugs Salcido was a friend, supporter and influence on all of us in The Sextants. He passed away on September 10th, 2014. This song that he wrote is our tribute to him. You may download it for free or pay whatever you choose. Any money collected will be passed on to his family.

Rest in Peace Bugs, you will be missed.
