About Enrique Guzman

One of Latin rock's pioneers, Mexican singer/songwriter/guitarist/actor Enrique Sanchez Guzman began his career in the '50s as a singing, acting teen heart-throb along the lines of Bobby Darin. Along with translating hits like "Jailhouse Rock," "Blue Suede Shoes" and "Multiplication" for a Latin audience, Guzman also wrote hits of his own, including "Pensaba en Ti," and songs for other early-'60s Latin-rock bands like Los Teen Tops. Movies like 1956's Canta Mi Corazon added to his prominence in the Mexican entertainment industry, and paved the way for his mid-'60s television show Silvia & Enrique, which also featured his wife at the time, actress Silvia Pinal. Throughout the '70s and '80s his acting and recording careers continued, and in the '90s he worked with Alejandra Guzman, his daughter with Pinal, on some of her early albums.
