Julio Iglesias – El Amor

Monday, December 10th, 2007

Julio Jose Iglesias de la Cueva was born on September 23, 1943 and is a prominent figure in Spanish music. Julio Iglesias claims that if it wasn’t for a car accident on September 22, 1963, he may not have had a music career at all. To quote:
“I had a car accident, very, very strange car accident,” remembers Iglesias. “I lost control of the car and rolled it, resulting in what they call paraparexia, which is not a paraplegic. It’s a compression in the cord, in the sense of the neck … my spinal cord, and I was very, very ill for three years.”

His doctors thought he wouldn’t walk again, but he did. He learned the guitar, won a singing contest, and as they say, the rest is history.
