In 1962, the band Mysterians formed with an original lineup of Larry Borjas
 on bass guitar,Borjas's cousin Robert Balderrama on guitar, and
Robert Martinez on guitars and bongos.Shortly after their forming,
 Martinez switched to drums. The Mysterians played instrumental music
 inspired by surf music groups and artists like Link Wray. Rudy Martinez,
Robert's brother, joined the band shortly thereafter as Question Mark,
 the lead singer. The band was now called Question Mark and
the Mysterians. These Mexican-American musicians came from
 the Saginaw, Michigan, except for Rudy Martinez who hailed 
from Flint, Michigan.Just before the band was scheduled
 to start recording, Robert Martinez was drafted into the 
U.S. Armed Forces and Borjas decided to enlistwith him. The band
 then recruited Eddie Serrato to replace Robert Martinez on drums
 and Frank Lugo to replace Borjas on bass guitar. The band also
 added fourteen-year-old Frank Rodriguez on keyboards, 
forming the classic "96 Tears"' lineup.
