Pepe Rivero played teclado when Melón played piano in the legendary Issac group of 1997. When Melón left, Pepe switched to piano, and when the majority of the group relocated to Spain, Pepe stayed with them and is now a member of Alain's group. Somewhere along the way (we haven't figured out exactly when), Pepe also played piano briefly (and very well) with Paulito FG. He must have left Issac and then returned as a pianist. When we figure it out we'll let you know! [Kevin Moore]
