Enrique Bunbury

Enrique Ortiz de Landázuri Izarduy, born 11 August 1967, is a Spanish singer-songwriter. He has been described as "by far the most international star of Spanish rock." Bunbury was born in Zaragoza, Aragon, Spain. He got involved in music in the early 1980s, making his debut in a high school band called Apocalipsis, and later played along with Proceso Entrópico. In 1984, Bunbury joined a group called Zumo de Vidrio, debuting as a lead vocalist. After adopting the nickname of Bunbury, taken from the Oscar Wilde stage play The Importance of Being Earnest, the musician founded the band Héroes del Silencio, becoming a major number in the Hispanic rock scene. The band eventually broke up in 1996 and Bunbury embarked on his solo career in 1997 by launching an electro-rock album, Radical Sonora with his new band: Copi, Del Moran, Ramon Gacias and former Héroes del Silencio guitarist Alan Boguslavsky.
