But I became a fan when I Want You was a smash, hitting #1 in both Italy and Spain and Top 10 in the U.K.. I was particularly drawn to his image he seemed so "out."
But we all know there was a lot of playing with sexual identity looks in the 80's. So was he or wasn't he? Who knows and does it even really matter?
All I know is that I bought my twelve inch maxi single of I Want You at the Corte Ingles in Plaza Catalunya in Barcelona and I played the hell out of it. One of his follow-up hits La Colegiala in 1984, actually a Peruvian cumbia was an even bigger hit and great fun too.

By the mid 80's the hits disappeared though there were still a few releases up until the early 90's even.
