For school, I need to do an essay sort of thing on a relatively well-known electric guitar player who was born in a spanish-speaking country. I don't know any, could somebody please name one or something? Thanks

I feel sorry for the drummer, he gets stuck with a guitarist who can't hold a rhythm to save his life and a vocalist in the middle of a heavy-flow month.
