Biography

Cadillac was a Spanish pop band. The group was founded in Madrid in 1981 by José María Guzmán (vocals/guitar) and Eduardo Ramírez (vocals/bass). They recruited Pedro Sánchez (vocals/keyboards) and Javier de Juan (drums) to form a quartet. Their first album,was released later that year. Javier de Juan left the group in 1982 and was replaced by Daniel Louis. Cadillac’s second and third albums also failed to sell in large quantities. Ramírez left the group, unhappy with decisions made by their record company, and Pepe Marchante came in as bassist. The group finally made a commercial breakthrough in 1985 with the album “Funkyllac”, which contained the hit single “Arturo” and featured harder rhythms which proved popular with record buyers. In 1986, Cadillac represented Spain in the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Valentino”.Marchante left the group in 1986, and this ultimately led to their decision to disband later that year.
