Founded in 1976 in Madrid by Argentineans Ariel Rot (guitar) and Alejo Stivel (vocals), and Spaniards Julian Infante, Felipe Lipe and Manolo Iglesias, TEQUILA was one of the most famous bands since their beginning until they broke up in 1982. Their career is crowded with hits such as Quiero Besarte, Salta!!! or Dime que me quieres, milestones of Spanish Rock ‘n Roll even today.
Clearly influenced by artists like Chuck Berry or The Rolling Stones, new in Spanish rock of the time, the band burst into the music scene with a fresh, funny and nonchalant rock which soon connected with a massive audience and turned them into rock & Roll stars.
Some years later, and after releasing two solo albums, Ariel Rot and Julian Infante formed Los Rodriguez with Andres Calamaro. Once this band broke up, Ariel picked up his solo career, which is still ongoing. Separately, Alejo Stivel kept connected to music becoming a successful music producer.
In 2008, Ariel Rot and Alejo Stivel reunited onstage upon the release of the record and DVD “Vuelve Tequila!”. That would be their last tour together, until now: they have come back together to say a definitive farewell to their eternal audience.
