Mexican singer Alejandra Guzmán is often called “La Reina del Rock,” the queen of Latin American rock and roll. Her parents, legendary Mexican rock star Enrique Guzmán and Golden Age actress Silvia Pinal, gave her an early start in the limelight, but Alejandra forged her own path when she left home as a teenager. Her debut single that came out of that act of rebellion, “Bye Mamá,” rose to the top of the Mexican charts in 1988 and established her as an icon. (Source: www.latinousa.org)

Now in her fifties, Alejandra has dealt with setbacks including a botched plastic surgery that almost killed her a decade ago. After a wild early career, Alejandra has stopped drinking and partying and has had to adapt her performances to accommodate her hip replacements. Still, she kicked off a stadium tour called “La Guzmán” last year, and recently released the album Live at the Roxy where she covers songs by iconic Latin American musicians including Maná, Café Tacuba, and Charly García.

Over her decade-spanning career, Latin rock icon Alejandra Guzman has decisively earned the title "La Reina del Rock" (The Queen of Rock), selling over 10 million albums and releasing a whopping 30 Top 10 singles. La Guzman, as she's affectionately referred to by fans, is a legendary performer, beloved for her racy image, infectious dancing, and colorful outfit changes — not to mention her powerful voice. In 2013, Guzman released her fourth live album "La Guzman En Primera Fila," demonstrating her enduring talents as a performer and building anticipation for her 2014 dates on the La Guzman 1F tour.

The daughter of actress Silvia Pinal and rock and roll legend Enrique Guzman, Alejandra Guzman has more than delivered on her promising pedigree, eclipsing the fame of her parents to become one of Latin music's biggest stars. After releasing several albums in the late '80s, Guzman achieved breakthrough success with 1991's seminal Flor de Papel, which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Pop Album. A steady stream of successful albums would follow in the '90s and '00s, including 2001's Soy, which took home a Latin Grammy for Best Rock Solo Album. An indefatigable performer with a reputation for her electrifying live concerts, Guzman thrilled fans with the announcement of the 2014 La Guzman 1F tour. (Source: www.ticketmaster.com)

Guzmán appeared for a few years in Mexican television soap operas while looking for a way to break into the music business. Her musical career took off in 1989 when she convinced Latin producer Miguel Blasco to helm her debut album Bye Mama. From the start Guzmán, who named the Rolling Stones and the throaty-voiced Janis Joplin and Billie Holiday as major influences, made a strong impact. It wasn't long before Mexican fans had proclaimed her "La Reina del Rock" or "The Queen of Rock." (Source: biography.jrank.org)
