The Héroes del Silencio was a Spanish Rockband from Zaragoza formed by guitarist Juan Valdivia in 1984. The band was during the 1980’s a success in Spain, North, and South America and in some Europese countries like Garmany, Belgium, Switzerland, Frans, Yugoslavia, and Portugal. The band was one of the main characters in the Spanish Rock scene. After 12 years the band decided to part ways in 1996. Singer Enrique Bunbury started a solo project and the other band members went their own way. In 2007 the band organized a world tour of 10 concerts as part of their 20 years existence.
At first, their name was Zumo de Vidrio and the band consisted of Juan Valdivia, his brother Pedro Valdivia, and their cousin Javier Guajardo Valdivia. Later joined by Enrique Bunbury. Bunbury was originally a bass player but after Juan Valdivia heard him sing a Davin Bowie song, Bunbury became the vocalist. The band changed their name in 1985 to Héroes del Silencio. They played in public places and made demo recordings but their breakthrough came when they participated in a music contest in Salamanca and won second place. An EMI producer, Gustavo Montesano, saw the band in the contest and at a later concert in Sala En Bruto, he signed the band.
