Argentinean rock band Viejas Locas was formed in the early '90s by classmates from a Buenos Aires' high school, who were previously playing covers of the Rolling Stones. The band made its live debut in November of 1990 at a local club called Alcatraz, having Mauro Bonom on vocals, Diego Cantoni and Cristian Alvarez on guitars, Gastón Mansilla on drums, and a temporary bassist. On November 30, 1991, the group had the opportunity to play along with La Renga, becoming a major act in the local underground scene. Soon bassist Fabian Crea, guitarist Sergio Toloza, and drummer Fabian Crea joined in. In 1993, Viejas Locas participated in a compilation called Una Noche En La Cueva with "Eva" and "Tirado En La Estación." They recorded a self-titled album in 1996 after signing up to PolyGram and climbing rock charts with "Intoxicado." A year later, Hermanos de Sangre was released. The band was chosen to open for the Rolling Stones at River Plate Stadium, later, performing as a main number at Obras Sanitarias. Viejas Locas' third album, called Especial, was issued in 1999.
