Luis Alberto Spinetta

 Luis Alberto "El Flaco" Spinetta was an Argentine musician. One of the most influential rock musicians of South America, together with Charly García he is considered the father of Argentine rock. He was born in Buenos Aires in the residential neighbourhood of Bajo Belgrano. During his early childhood he was already listening to all kinds of music: folklore, tango, and a little bit later, rock. In 1967, amidst the repressive political climate, he formed a band called Almendra with his schoolmates.

Contrasting with the backwards and authoritarian government of General Juan Carlos Onganía, Buenos Aires was undergoing a cultural blossoming based on new art expressions; the new generation, among sons of the middle class, were immersed in an effervescence that would not reappear in Argentina until 1983. Spinetta devoted himself fully to his own music. In his lyrics, there are influences of multiple writers, poets and artists like Arthur Rimbaud, Vincent van Gogh, Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud, Friedrich Nietzsche, Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, Carlos Castaneda and Antonin Artaud, who has his name in the album Artaud.
