Biography

Chilean pop band group Los Galos was formed in Santiago in 1963 by teenage friends Roberto Zúñiga Mauro (drums), Juan Méndez (clarinet), and Luis Tamblay (accordion), who began performing together under the name The Douglas. In 1966, guitarist Carlos Baeza joined the group while Méndez and Baeza left to focus on their academic careers. After recruiting clarinetist Nicolás Parra and bassist Lucho Muñoz, The Douglas scored a deal with Caracol Records in 1967 and changed their name to El Sonido de Los Galos at the suggestion of label owner Antonio Contreras Aguilera. Following the release of the singles "Tímido" and the Los Iracundos cover "Ven Que Estoy Hirviendo," Los Galos issued their studio debut Tu Nombre al Viento (1969), the first one to feature keyboardist Jorge Deij. The band finally hit its stride in 1970 with the album Cómo Deseo Ser Tu Amor, whose title track became a massive hit in both Chile and Argentina. Over the next few years, Los Galos solidified their status as bonafide hitmakers with the singles "¿Qué Esperas de Mí?," "Un Minuto de Tu Amor," and "Perdona Si Me Ves Llorar" while relentlessly touring throughout Latin America. After a near-death experience on the road in 1971 and lead vocalist Lucho Muñoz's departure in 1974, Roberto Zúñiga Mauro, Jorge Deij, Nicolás Parra, and Leonardo Núñez kept the group's legacy alive on the albums De Boca en Boca (1976), Te Quiero Cada Día Más (1979), and the covers album Un Poco Más de Amor (2005).
