  10. Lilian Clark, Gustavo's mother and Lisa, his daughter

    Nothing official from cerati.com, here’s a news article from Peru

    In Spanish
    Martes 13 de julio de 2010
    From El Mercurio

    In English ( it hasn’t translated very well but you get the jist of it)

    Lilian Clark profile:
    Gustavo Cerati’s mother

    She is the person who has spent time with Gustavo Cerati. I gave birth, he grew up, attended his birth as an artist, and now-so-unthinkable is at your side in the dark hours. But little is known about his life. This is the portrait of Lilian Clark, a woman enters a terrible time.

    By Josefina Licitra. Research assistance: Jessica De Santo.

    This woman is another.

    That’s what the residents of Villa Ortuzar, north of the city of Buenos Aires, the place where the mother Lilian Clark, Gustavo Cerati, spent the last four decades of his life. Villa Ortúzar, Lilian lived with her husband, raised three children, was widowed and built a placid neighborhood life: he walked the streets with a shopping bag, did gymnastics in the park and took her grandson Gustavo Benito-on the carousel

    Lilian had, in short, an affable presence.

    But now this woman is another.

    First, because mid-morning party for Fleni-Institute where Gustavo Cerati has been since June 7th , and goes to that neighborhood until the next day. And, secondly, because the stroke (CVA) Cerati suffered marked the end and the beginning of many things, in many ways, for many people. Cerati was arrested in a rare and endless quiet. And Lilian Clark, the longest serving woman at his side, became a wounded bird.

    “A few days ago I was found on the sidewalk. Lilian looked at me in silence. Then she hugged me and began to mourn, “recalls Daniel Aguinaga, who owns a hardware store and neighboring Villa near Lilian Ortúzar for twenty years.

    The problem is well-known, it began in Caracas on 18 May. During a tour to promote the album Natural Force, Gustavo Cerati suffered a stroke that left him in the words of the doctors, “unconscious” with “irreversible brain damage” and a future full of bad signals.

    In those days, Lilian, operated just sight-traveled to Venezuela and from there was some telephone interviews. Her voice was full and confident: a mother Lilian was convinced that the child was once hers, who had noodles for his lunch meal, who was drawing comics, playing guitar with a broom handle, save the man who belonged to everyone.

    “I was always green, my kids ate very healthy in my house, and I hope that this young body that never gave problems has reserves to cope with this difficult situation. I was told that there are prayer chains up in the Himalayas.

    My son is a great artist, I always knew. But now I realize that he has touched the hearts of the people, she told the Todo Noticias Argentina. And then shelled and bitter love that paragraph that occupied the pages of newspapers:

    “Come, dear, mommy is waiting. As if you were that little boy so cute blonde and dared to say that you were going to play big. I know that boy will come back.

    Tea for three

    Villa Ortúzar is a neighborhood of trees and tender sprouted foliage, which successfully developed in isolation from any discourse of insecurity. Here there is often no robberies or major fears: the pulse of the street is quiet. In the kindness and with her sisters grew Cerati. Not all the neighbours talk – “respect”, they say, but those who do insist on the same issues: the normality of the family, on one side. The way in which the incident left its mark on the other.

    “Lilian has always been humble and kind, accompanied Gustavito everywhere. But since he suffered the misfortune, I only saw her once again and I felt very sad. She is not much out of her house “says Carlos, the newsagent.

    “It was unusual to see Lilian hugging Gustavo on the sidewalk. The last time I saw her she told me he was better. But she is no longer the same woman said Roberto, one of the chefs at La Mezzetta, a local pizza place where you can only eat standing up and the family used to go (Laura sister of Gustavo, even giving away tickets the shows to the pizza).

    “Lilian is a very strong woman and flirtatious,” says the ironmonger Daniel Aguinaga. We talked a lot about Gustavo, how he composed his songs. But she always spoke of the person, not a rock star.

    Because he is a person, not a superhero, Lilian always saw to it that her son had the best possible health. In adulthood, she asked to leave the two packs a day cigarettes, with the heaviness of a horsefly, and without much luck. And as a child, fed him based on healthy and organic products: a fairly tied to the trends of the time, taking into account that Cerati was a child in Florida and the powerful 60s.
    At that time, many years ago, Lillian was writing stories and poems as a hobby “, and raise her children, by choice.

    She was not alone. Her husband was still alive, Juan José Cerati: an accountant and engineer who bought Gustavo his first Spanish guitar at nine years old and supported the idea of early vocations accompanying his three children.
    But in 1992, when the call was a fact and expanded to Latin America, Juan José Cerati died. And left behind many things. Among them, a woman with blue eyes and a sad story that Gustavo masterfully succeeded in translating the language of art.

    The day Cerati’s father learned that his cancer had no return, he was wealthy, and had Gustavo & Lilian around a table with tea.

    “My husband was very ill, but he wanted to know everything and we complied with it,” Lilian told years ago in an interview with a radius of Delhi, within the province of Buenos Aires. The day we were testing drinking tea: as good Irish heiress, never missed home. We had on hand the last result to score what was the state of the disease. And the fact that the reviews were very negative. Then my husband wanted to see. He was a man with great self-control. Quiet. And we were all three.

    The three: mother, father, son.

    “And I could not stand. “I saw you cried / I saw you cry about it.” That theme, “tea for three” was born that way. In this house.

    Lilian’s house is a simple construction with a stone facade and a small garden at the rear. There, somehow, despite everything, “Lilian is never alone. She is accompanied by her youngest daughter, Laura, who is by her shoulder in contact with the press since last May.

    And also visit Cerati fans, which in some cases even invited to go and have tea. The relationship with the fans, yes, it is not always so kind. One indicator of this is the black bars covering the door. Years ago, a crazed fan decided it was time to enter, he gained momentum and took the door down.

    For this kind of thing, Lilian relationship with the followers of Cerati is polite but sinuous. Javier Vazquez, Peruvian journalist and fan, he knew 13 years ago, when he traveled to Buenos Aires to attend a show of Soda Stereo and decided to start the adventure going to hit the house of the mother of his idol.

    – Yesssss? Lilian replied to the other side of the communicator.

    “Hi, sorry to bother you, do you find Gustavo?

    “No, do not live here any Gustavo!

    Javier had quick reflexes:

    “No court, is that I come from Peru and I was told I could locate him here …

    – In Peru? Mmm … a minute.

    Seconds later, Javier was facing a blonde, blue eyes like wells, with short body and wrapped in an apron. That is, a neighborhood lady lunch.

    “What I liked was that to look like a normal housewife,” recalls Javier. But it was Lilian Clark. When I saw her, I thought: “I knew that God had Mom.”

    The mother of God, that day, thirteen years ago, with the apron and hair because without any makeup, Javier received at the hands of a poster to autograph. Both were talking ten minutes and from then Alice described with one word: “angelic.”

    “And ma’am,” the fans are insistent, “how will I know if Gustavo and signed my poster?

    “Do not worry, call me on the phone and tell you whether he did or not,” said Lilian.

    And then he said his name and phone number. Finally, before leaving gave him a secret:

    Then the show will have a private party the side of the stage-whispered. If you can, go.

    Since then, Javier is convinced that Clark was Lilian know better than to Gustavo Cerati.

    No longer

    After the accident of her child, Lilian speak to reporters only by phone and the days before his trip to Venezuela. In those talks, his voice calm and feels whole. As if the problem was other-something lighter, and there was a possible remedy.

    All told Channel News:

    “The true concern we had years ago when it happened that venous thrombosis. Unfortunately, Gustavo, even though he quit smoking a while, then took the butt again. He has 50 years, Gustavo. This will be either serious signal that you should leave the butt.

    America told Channel News:

    “My heart is quiet. I think he will get through this. I do not mind the consequences, because we will help him combat them. I am a mother full time. They ate very healthy in my house. And I hope that this body that never gave problems Young has reservations as to address this situation so difficult. He’s a strong kid. I have touched the brain, which is as hard as he has. In addition to his sweetheart.

    He said the signal Telefé:

    “Besides the cigarette, was the excessive stress. Gustavo was a very self-demanding, made a very big tour, from too much exposure.

    He told CNN:

    “I always supported him being a musician, but there are times when I wish he was an ordinary clerk. Although they also have peaks of stress, right? Better than an artist, that’s what I wanted to be. I have great faith in Gustavo.

    So far, Lilian did not cry in public for her son. At most stopped buying the papers (before she did every day, cut out the news-good-to name Cerati) and sought the intimate embrace of her family and neighbourhood. But in the face of the media was always full. Positive. Releasing the words as if they were driven by a favourable wind.

    From these statements, however, passed away two months and no progress on the clinical status of Gustavo Cerati.

    It is now July. Now a faint voice, modulated, soft, attends “El Mercurio”, said by telephone:

    “Please excuse me.

    It is a good voice, tender.

    “Later we talked.

    It’s a friendly voice.

    “I’m not of mind.

    It’s a sad voice.

    Not an official update, some background on what happened in Caracas in May

    Clarin Interview, I’ve picked the best interview with Richard Coleman as some others don’t quote him fully, this is very heartfelt

    In Spanish
    Here’s the Spanish link at clarin.com

    In English
    I’ve tweaked the translation in English as it didn’t read particularly well.

    Richard Coleman

    Gustavo Cerati name combined with the fateful night in Caracas, Richard Coleman’s face changes. He does not understand how after what he considered “the best concert of the tour Natural Force” how his friend entered this ordeal.

    How to remember the night Gustavo suffered the stroke, in Venezuela?
    We had a great show. Then we went to dressing rooms, we moved around, we had dinner and received visits. Everything in the course of an hour and a half. As was the last show of this leg of the tour, we took a picture with the team. Gustavo’s face was tired.

    Then he returned to the dressing room and was left alone. After a while, he had an ischemia. He lost control of his hand and arm, and was helped by someone in the team.

    Were you aware of what was happening? In the corridors, I found a very rare mood. (Adrian) Taverna looked at me with a face that said something bad had happened. Paramedics arrived and they checked his blood pressure … The stretcher took him conscious, and we crossed glances with him.

    What was your first reaction?
    Of distress … we all went to the clinic. I stayed with (Fernando) Nale and Gonzalo (Córdoba) waiting for news. We felt helpless.

    “To Imagine that something could happen? No, no way. It was very unexpected.

    What he saw was that Gus was not careful enough, but never had we expected something. I noticed that he did not rest enough. I thought that this was triggered by a stressful situation.

    Did you not feel a state of vulnerability? I did not feel vulnerable, but then I think more of universal good: “We are nothing! That’s how fragile we are! “What happened to Gustavo could have been passed on to anyone. It is a misfortune.

    The clinical situation is still fragile, and the pattern of brain damage, will have significant consequences. Are you ready to meet a different Gustavo? Nobody is prepared for these things. The love we have is huge.
    Therefore, we know how to be close, because there is a love that transcends all barriers. But yes it will be hard.

  13. Cerati breathing on his own with “minimal mechanical assistance,” says his niece

    In Spanish
    By Agencia EFE – 29th July 2010 2 hours ago

    In English
    Tweaked the translation, it reads quite well now

    Buenos Aires, July 29 (EFE) .- The Argentinian musician Gustavo Cerati, who in mid-May suffered a serious brain injury, is breathing on his own “with minimal mechanical assistance, today announced his niece, Guadalupe Mujica.

    The leader of the disbanded rock band Soda Stereo, who last May 16 had a stroke after he played a concert in Caracas, suffers no new infections and hydrocephalus suffering “is already controlled”, the agency revealed by Mujica to the official Argentina news Telam.

    “No major changes, but is clinically stable,” added the niece of rocker 51, who is housed in a neonatal intensive care unit at a medical centre in Buenos Aires.

    The last medical report released in June reported that the artist suffered a large infraction in the left cerebral hemisphere and brain stem damage, injuries that keep him in a coma and on a ventilator.

    On July 20 the Cerati family said the singer had no significant changes, but appreciated the support it has received in recent months.

    It is good he is stable, breathing well and recovering slowly ♥♥Fuerza Gus ♥♥

    Not an official update from Cerati.com
    I’d prefer to hear any not so good news from them, right now it must be hard as any news no matter how sad, is going to be leaked from somewhere.
    The way this reads as it is quite normal for this to happen and I’m sure his doctors are making sure he is given the best care possible. He is still stable and not in danger. My thoughts go out to his family as always.

  22. As there is no official news,

    Interview with Max Goldberg (Organic Food Activist) in Huffington Post click on link for whole interview (It’s all in English)

    Here’s the part us Cerati fans are interested in

    What magazine, Web site, book, album, or product are you most obsessed with right now?

    “I am not obsessed with any of those right now. However, I have been listening to a lot of Gustavo Cerati lately.

    Gustavo Cerati is an absolute icon in Argentina and was the leader of a band called Soda Stereo, which is considered by many to be the greatest Latin rock band ever.

    Unfortunately, he had a stroke a few months ago in Venezuela after a concert and has been in a coma ever since. I doubt I will ever get to see him perform live again. It is very, very sad.

    While Latin artists such as Shakira, Ricky Martin, and Juanes may be more famous in the United States, there is no one more of a genius.”

    Here’s a picture of Chloe and Gus

  23. cerati es un icono en argentina, chile y toda america latina. no hay más.

    • Thanks columb1a for you comment

      Translated it means;
      “Cerati is an icon in Argentina, Chile and throughout Latin America. there’s no more” (that there is no other icon in Latin America like Cerati)

      I agree with you completely, (He is not that well known here in the UK, though at least all my friends and family know who he is now!!)
      I could see his genius very soon after I was introduced to him. I adore the man utterly!

  24. Came across your webblog via yahoo the other day and absolutely think its great. Keep up the great work.

    • Thanks Debbra, for your lovely comments.
      I’ve been a bit quiet with Cerati updates as there isn’t much to write about as he is stable and that is all that matters at this moment.

      Have a look through my blog there is a lot of content there to explore 🙂

  25. Some news from his beloved Mother 🙂

    Lilian Clark interviewd by Gente magazine, “Gustavito va a salir: nunca fue de bajar los brazos” Here is the link in Spanish http://bit.ly/bJGyBE

    In English From Momento 24 http://bit.ly/crOJU4
    The family of Gustavo Cerati, who is in coma after suffering a stroke, is very optimistic about his recovery.

    “We know he will succeed. He was never giving up. So we keep the hope from the first day. In the family we are confident about his recovery,” former leader of Soda Stereo’s mother said to Gente Magazine.

    Thousands of fans are supporting everyday to the musician and his mother, Lilian Clark took a few minutes to make statements and bring a message of hope to the fans.

    “He is a fighter and is struggling. I want to thank for the support and respect from the fans and journalism. And I tell them not to worry because his loved ones are at all times at his side. We will do the impossible for him. And the rest, he is going to do it, I’m sure, because Gustavito is very strong,” Clark added.

    The musician suffered a stroke during a tour for Venezuela on May16. He was then transferred to Buenos Aires and is currently admitted to the institute Fleni in the neighborhood of Belgrano.

    In late July, doctors placed a silicone valve to drain the hydrocephalus (accumulation of fluid in the brain). A few days later, an MRI was done and it shows that he still had too much fluid inside the skull.

    Gustavo Cerati’s mother has faith in the “natural force” of her son
    Lilian Clark keeps vigil over the health of the Argentine rock legend.
    By Noel Antonelli – for Infosurhoy.com 18/10/2010

    Gustavo Cerati has been comatose since suffering a cerebral vascular accident after a concert in Caracas, Venezuela, in May. (Stringer / Reuters)

    BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – I believed he had died when I heard the news of the collapse of her son in Venezuela five months ago.

    She says she still cries, but has learned to persevere.

    Is in a vigil, always at his side, and said she will leave “the day we sing glory.”

    Lilian Clark, the mother of the Argentine rock legend Gustavo Cerati, refuses to put aside the hope that her child wakes from coma he’s been in after suffering a stroke after a concert in Caracas, Venezuela on 16 May.

    “We know that these diseases are always an unknown,” she said in an exclusive interview with Infosurhoy.com. “But we have great faith in the natural force of Gustavo.”
    I never thought that an artist Calara so deep in the heart of people

    Doctors looking after Cerati have said the Argentine idol suffered extensive brain damage. But his health seems to have improved somewhat.

    “Gustavo is going through a process scientifically known as chronic,” says Clark. “This means that he has left the critical phase and that for us it’s a breakthrough. The clinic is more concise when giving forecasts, but we have hope. ”

    Everyday Laura Clark and her daughter go to the Fleni clinic in Buenos Aires where Cerati is interned since he was hospitalized after being transferred from Venezuela on 7 June.

    “We take turns with my daughter, she lives a little closer and goes earlier, then I go and I stay late,” said Clark. “So every day. I can not stay at home if you do not see him and do not play, you have to feel the affection and know that going out with the help of everyone. ”

    Outside Clinic Fleni the legion of fans continue to pray for Cerati. Fans of Latin America and the world have flooded social networking with tributes to the dedicated artist, who was leader of the rock band Soda Stereo.

    “We have faith that his will is strong,” said Monica Gonzalez Hernandez, 36, president of Stereo Cerati fan club of Chile. “We have prayer chains, and maintain a green ribbon on our wrists from the day of his birthday [August 11], “she said.

    Fans are also planning a mass event in honour of Cerati’s influence in Chile.

    “The event theme will be ‘A year after the last show in Chile Gustavo, relive it with us’

    Cerati’s influence in the music world continues. The pop superstar Shakira plans to include two songs written by Cerati in her new Spanish album, “Exit the Sun.”

    Cerati won three Latin Grammy nominations, including best rock album and best rock song for his album “Natural Force”, which also received seven nominations for the Gardel Award , the Argentine equivalent of the Grammy.

    Clark says she knows how much her child is appreciated.

    “Thank you all. If there is something that really moved me to tears is the attitude of the fans and letters sent to us, “says Clark.” I am proud that my son has woken people. I knew that he was known and famous, but I never believed that an artist Calara so deep in the heart of the people. That fills me with strength to keep fighting for him, which always holds the hand of the family Pegaditas your heart, every day. ”

    LAS VEGAS (Reuters) – The Latin Grammy awards kicked off in Las Vegas on Thursday, with Argentina’s Gustavo Cerati picking up early awards for best rock album and song.

    Cerati, who has been in a coma since suffering a stroke earlier this year, has been a fixture in Latin music for decades. He fronted the popular rock band Soda Stereo in the 1980s and 90s before launching a solo career.

    On Thursday, Cerati won the best rock album Latin Grammy for “Fuerza Natural” and best rock song award for “Deja Vu” during a pre-telecast ceremony in which 34 statues were handed out.

    The award for best urban song went to Spanish hip-hop singer Mala Rodriguez for “No Pidas Perdon.” Rodriguez is also nominated for best urban album for “Dirty Bailarina.”

    Several elder statesman of Latin music picked up key awards, including Panamanian salsa singer Ruben Blades for best singer-songwriter album with “Cantares del Subdesarrollo,” Brazilian singer Gilberto Gil took home best MPB (musica popular brasileira) album for ” Banda Dois” and best native Brazilian roots album for “Fe Na Festa.”

    Cuban trumpeter Arturo Sandoval won best instrumental album for “A Time For Love.”

    The night’s biggest awards, for categories like record of the year and best new artist, will be revealed during a live broadcast on the Spanish language Univision Network Thursday night.

    Spaniard Alejandro Sanz, Uruguay’s Jorge Drexler, and Mexican trio Camila are among the contenders in several of the key categories.

    The Latin Recording Academy recognizes music released anywhere in the world under the condition that they were recorded in Spanish or Portuguese.

    Gustavo is listening, there’s no doubt, but he’s still in coma”

    “he is strong and his family is permanently by his side, especially his mother and children, giving him all the love in the world” “I also – as the Priest tells you when he marries you – am in good times and bad … together, amen”

    But the Alcla clinic said “there has been some reaction to certain sounds, but that does not mean a change in his general situation.”
