T. TINIO

…1974 brought the first breakup of Juan dela Cruz, although some of the members kept on touring. Eventually, they all had a dispute with Dodie Gonzales, their manager, and the brother of Wally. However, Dodie owned the rights to the name Juan dela Cruz. So Mike and company (essentially the original band) got Bo Razon back and renamed themselves “T.Tinio”, which, although it sounds like it was meant to be an insult to Wally and Dodie (and no one believed it wasn’t), was actually from a Pampanggo manager they had had, named Teodoro Tinio, insists Mike to this day.
