Rock Musician. A guitarist and vocalist, he was a founding member of the music group Redbone. Born Lolly Vasquez, he began his career along with his brother Pat (a bass player and vocalist) during the 1960s as a session musician; this led to an appearance in the film "It's a Bikini World" (1967). After signing with the Epic record label in 1969, the Los Angeles-based Native-American band known for its "Swamp-Rock" sound successfully charted the hit "The Witch Queen of New Orleans" (peaking at number 21 in January 1972), and later their gold record "Come and Get Your Love" (reaching number 5 in February 1974). Vegas remained a member of the group until suffering a stroke in 1995. He died from lung cancer.
